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.

Representative 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.
