Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

84. Rise and Shine

Rise and Shine, a new day's dawning
Chance to make a better day
Rise and Shine, get up, stop yawning
Chance to go a diff'rent way
One more chance to join the tussle
One more chance before the night
Chance to lend my mind and muscle
Chance to fin'ly get things right

2 Rise and Shine, the page is turning
Turning into destiny
Rise and Shine, the book is closing
Closing into history
No more time for nursing sorrow
No more time to wish and whine
Time is now and not tomorrow
Time is now to Rise and Shine.
