Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

There Is a Higher Throne

Representative Text

1 There is a higher throne
than all this world has known,
Where faithful ones from ev’ry tongue
will one day come.
Before the Son we’ll stand,
made faultless through the Lamb;
Believing hearts find promised grace;
salvation comes.

Refrain
Hear heaven’s voices sing;
their thund’rous anthem rings.
Through em’rald courts and sapphire skies
their praises rise.
All glory, wisdom, pow’r,
strength, thanks, and honor are
to God our King who reigns on high
forevermore.

2 And there we’ll find our home,
our life before the throne.
We’ll honor him in perfect song
where we belong.
He’ll wipe each tear-stained eye
as thirst and hunger die.
The Lamb becomes our Shepherd-King;
we’ll reign with him.
Refrain
