Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 We've found the rock, the travelers cried,
The stone that all the prophets tried:
Come children drink the balmy dew,
'Twas Christ that shed his blood for you.

2 This costly mixture cures the soul,
Which sin and guild had made so foul,
O that you would believe in god,
And wash in Christ's most precious blood.

3 O hearken children! Christ is come,
The bride is ready, let us run,
I'm glad I ever saw this day,
That we might meet to praise and pray.

4 There's glory, glory in my soul,
Come mourner feel the current roll,
Welcome dear friends, 'tis known to night,
It shines around with dazzling light.

5 And in this light we'll soar away,
Where there's no night but lasting day,
O children, children, bear the cross,
And count the world below as dross.

6 We'll bear the cross and wear the crown,
And by our Father's side sit down,
His grace will feed our hungry souls,
Where love divine for ever rolls.

7 His fiery chariots make their way,
To welcome us to endless day;
There glittering millions we shall join,
To praise the Prince of David's line.
