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

128. This Is the Day the Lord Hath Made

1 This is the day the Lord hath made;
and unto us did give;
come, let us now rejoice in it,
and gladly in it live!

2 Today he rose and left the dead,
and Satan's empire fell;
today the saints his triumphs spread,
and all his wonders tell.

3 Hosanna to th'anointed King,
to David’s holy Son!
Make haste to help us, Lord, and bring
salvation from thy throne.

4 Blest be the Lord, who comes in power
with messages of grace,
who comes in this accepted hour
to save our sinful race.

5 Hosanna in the highest strains
the church on earth can raise:
the highest heav'ns, in which God reigns
shall give him nobler praise.
