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

Full Text

1 Again the Sabbath God has blest,
To us returns with peace and rest;
And to His courts we come to pay,
Our tribute on the Lord’s own day.

2 Oh, blessed day, in which we turn
Our hearts to God, and Heav’n, and learn
The lesson of its holy calm,
And worship Him, the great I am.

3 Today God seems so very near,
He smiles, the shadows disappear,
And in the sunshine of His love,
Our hearts mount upward like the dove.

4 Hail, holy day, wherein may we
Find foretaste of the rest to be,
When heavn’s eternal Sabbath brings
Fulfilment of God’s promisings.
