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.

Representative Text

1 With reverence and holy fear,
Let christian worshippers draw near,
And consecrate this house to be!
The Lord's abode and sanctuary.

2 Here let them meet, to hear and pray,
And seek the Lord, our life and way;
O may it be a place to find:
A Salem, for the seeking mind.

3 Here may they build each other up,
In charity, and faith, and hope;
Until they taste, and feel, and know:
That Jesus dwells with Saints below.

4 Here may the gospel glory shine,
And fill each soul with grace divine;
God's holy word, and means of grace,
Be always used in this place.

5 Since Jesus is the great high priest,
Who always makes his people blest,
When they approach within the vail,
What joys and comforts shall they feel.

6 What glories shall they there behold!
More precious than the choicest gold;
A glimps of the bless'd Saviour's throne!
A heav'n on earth for them begun.
