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

93. The New Church Year Again Is Come

1 The new church year again is come
And wakes the joy of Christendom;
Thy King, O Zion, comes to thee,
Rejoice, rejoice eternally.
Have mercy, O Lord!

2 Now in our midst anew are heard
The lessons of God's holy Word
that lead the way to life and heav'n;
Lord, praise to Thee for this be giv'n.
Have mercy, O Lord!

3 Thy truth repeated o'er and o'er
Our faith will strengthen more and more;
Let it abide in us, that we
May join in endless praise to Thee.
Have mercy, O Lord!
