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

Representative Text

1 A song, a song to the crystal spring
In the mountain shadows hiding;
Each pearly drop
Doth a chorus sing,
While along the brooklet gliding.

Refrain:
As we onward flow, we will banish woe,
Ever health and strength sustaining;
To the thirsty give,
Bid them drink and live,
Ev’ry pois’nous cup disdaining.

2 A song, a song to the crystal spring
In the shadows of the mountain;
The streamlets sing,
We will comfort bring
From the sweet and sparkling fountain. [Refrain]

3 A song, a song to the crystal spring,
To the world a priceless blessing;
Let echoes ring,
While the streamlets sing,
And the winds are them caressing. [Refrain]
