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.

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.

Work, for the Day is Coming

Author: Basil Manly Hymnal: The Glad Refrain for the Sunday School #6 (1886) Topics: Activity; Activity Lyrics: 1 Work, for the day is coming, Day in the Word foretold, When, 'mid the scenes triumphant, Longed for by saints of old, He who on earth a stranger Traversed its paths of pain, Jesus, the Prince, the Saviour, Comes evermore to reign. 2 Work, for the day is coming; Darkness will soon be gone; Then o'er the night of weeping Day without end shall dawn; What now we sow in sadness, Then we shall reap in joy; Hope will be changed to gladness, Praise be our best employ. 3 Work, for the Lord is coming; Children of light are we; From Jesus’ bright appearing Powers of darkness flee. Now morning light is breaking, Day dawns in every land, Night shades beset no longer, For Christ is now at hand. Languages: English Tune Title: [Work, for the day is coming]

The spacious firmament on high

Author: Joseph Addison (1672-1719) Hymnal: Church Hymnary (4th ed.) #148 (2005) Topics: The Living God The Activity of God - God in creation; The Activity of God God in creation Lyrics: 1 The spacious firmament on high, with all the blue ethereal sky, and spangled heavens, a shining frame, their great Original proclaim. The unwearied sun from day to day does his Creator's power display; and publishes to every land the work of an almighty hand. 2 Soon as the evening shades prevail, the moon takes up the wondrous tale, and nightly to the listening earth repeats the story of her birth; while all the stars that round her burn, and all the planets, in their turn, confirm the tidings, as they roll and spread the truth from pole to pole. 3 What though in solemn silence all move round the dark terrestrial ball? What though no real voice nor sound amid their radiant orbs be found? In reason's ear they all rejoice, and utter forth a glorious voice; for ever singing as they shine, 'The hand that made us is divine.' Scripture: Psalm 19:1-6 Languages: English Tune Title: FIRMAMENT
