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.

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

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.
