Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

The Savior meets his flock today

Full Text

1 The Savior meets his flock to day,
Shall I in sloth abide at home?
Shall I behind the people stay?
When Jesus calls there still is room,
I'll go--it is a place of pray'r,
Who knows but God may meet me there?

2 To day Immanuel feeds his saints,
And her the Christians find their King--
They lay open their complaints,
And her the Savior's praise they sing;
Into their number I'll presume,
Since Jesus kindly bids me come.

3 How long did faithful Anna wait,
And sought the Lord full four score years,
Both day and night, at th' temple gate;
She watch'd with many sighs and tears,
And scarcely left the house of pray'r
Till God vouchsaf'd to meet her there.

4 Dear Savior, then permit me pow'r,
And like the saints I'll watch for thee,
Content till the appointed hour,
When thou shalt be reveal'd in me;
Daily my soul within thy date,
Shall for thy gracious presence wait.

5 Remove temptation, O my Lord,
And let my enemies be slain,
Who would withdraw me from thy word,
And plunge me in the world again;
And when the Bridegroom shall appear,
O may my soul be found in pray'r
