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.
Harry Plantinga

78. It is Good to be Here

1 We come once again our Redeemer to meet,
We turn from the world and its care;
To worship the King as we bow at His feet,
And seek for His blessing in prayer.

And now may His promise to us be fulfilled,
That He in our midst will appear;
And then we shall sing in the fullness of joy,
Praise the Lord, it is good to be here.

2 We come where so oft we have gathered before,
His blessed communion to share;
Our souls to refresh at the fountain of grace,
And seek His direction in prayer. [Refrain]

3 We come in His name, as He taught us to come,
Who knows every burden we bear;
Still resting our hope on the strength of His word,
We know He will answer our prayer. [Refrain]
