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

Representative Text

1 There’s rejoicing in the presence of the angels
Over sinners coming home,
All the heav’nly harpers with a mighty chorus,
Now are praising round the throne.

Then rejoice, all ye ransomed,
Let your praises reach to heaven’s highest dome,
For the dead’s alive, the lost is found, and wand’rers
Now are coming, coming home.

2 Oh, how happy is the sinner who has tasted
Of the Savior’s wond’rous love,
Love, that bringeth peace and joy, which passeth knowledge,
Ever given from above. [Refrain]

3 IN the home where once was strife, and pain, and sorrow,
There’ll be blessed peace and joy,
Pray’r and praise to God around the family altar
Will the pow’r of sin destroy. [Refrain]

4 We will rally round the standard of our Savior;
And to others loudly call,
Come, ye sinners, and repent, believe in Jesus,
He will freely pardon all. [Refrain]
