We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

The Song of the Church

Thou worthy art to take the book And open every seal

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

9. Thou worthy art to take the Book,
And open ev'ry Seal;
For thou wast slain, and, by thy Blood,
Redeem'd us from all Ill,
To God; from ev'ry Nation, Tongue,
And Tribe of humane Birth;
10. And made us Kings, and Priests, to God,
And we shall reign on Earth.
