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.

The Christian's hope

Representative Text

1. While trav'ling thro this dreary land,
O'er mountain heights or desert sand;
Hope makes the drooping spirits rise,
And cheers me on to reach the prize.

Chorus:
Oh blessed hope!
Oh precious hope!
It lifts the vail and now I see
That land of light where comes no night
Where I shall live eternally.

2. This Blessed Hope is dear to me,
It lifts me up till I can see
That jasper city bright and fair,
Beyond this world of toil and care. [Chorus]

3. This world no Hope like this can give,
Nor life so sweet as this to live;
No longer I in darkness grope,
For now I walk by light of Hope. [Chorus]
