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

11. Safely Through Another Week

1 Safely through another week
God has brought us on our way;
Let us now a blessing seek
Waiting in His courts today:
Day of all the week the best,
Emblem of eternal rest!

2 Mercies multiplied each hour
Thro' the week our praise demand;
Guarded by almighty pow'r,
Fed and guided by His hand,
How ungrateful we have been
In repaying love with sin!

3 While we pray for pard'ning grace,
Thro' the dear Redeemer's Name,
Show Thy reconciled face,
Look not on our sin and shame.
From our worldly cares set free,
May we rest this day with Thee.

4 As we come Thy name to praise,
May we feel Thy presence near;
May Thy glory meet our eyes
While we in Thy house appear!
Here afford us, Lord, a taste
Of our everlasting feast.

5 May Thy Gospel's joyful sound
Conquer sinners, comfort saints;
May the fruits of grace abound,
Bring relief for all complaints.
This may all our Sabbaths prove,
Till we join the Church above.

Amen.
