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.
1 With joy and gladness in my soul
I hear the call to prayer;
Let us go up to God's own house
And bow before Him there.
2 We stand within thy sacred walls,
O Zion, blest for aye.
Wherein the people of the Lord
United homage pay.
3 They come to learn Jehovah's will,
His mighty deeds to own,
For there is judgment's royal seat,
Messiah's kingly throne.
4 O pray that Zion may be blest
And have abundant peace,
For all that love thee in their hearts
Shall prosper and increase.
5 I pray the Lord that peace may still
Within thy walls abound,
And ever in thy palaces
Prosperity be found.
6 Yea, for the sake of friends and kin,
My heart desires thy peace,
And for the house of God the Lord
My care shall never cease.
