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.

Representative Text

1. There is sound of rejoicing around the great throne,
A whisper of myriad wings;
For the foe that accuseth us lies cast down,
And the choir of angels sings—

Salvation, and honor, and majesty be,
Lord of all power and might unto Thee.

2. And the soul may approach to her God without dread,
In moment of praise of prayer;
Fear ye not, the bright angels of God have said,
Glad tidings of joy we bear. [Refrain]

3. But the hour draweth nigh when the angel shall stand
With foot on the silent shore;
By the Lord he shall swear, as he lifts his hand,
And that time shall be no more. [Refrain]

4. And the thunders shall roll, and the dead, great and small,
At the throne of the Judge shall stand;
And the song shall resound thro’ the heav’nly hall,
Of the saints at God’s right hand. [Refrain]
