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

1 Another happy hour has passed
In prayer and converse sweet;
Lord, keep us faithful, kind and true,
Till here again we meet,
Lord, watch between us day by day,
Do Thou our witness be;
In all we do and all we say
We would be true to Thee!

2 May gentle words and kindly thoughts
Go with us as we part,
And tender Christian sympathy
Fill ev’ry loving heart.
Lord, watch between us as we go,
And witness from above,
If aught shall break this holy bond,
This fellowship of love.

3 United under Thy dear name,
O Lord Thy Spirit give,
And may our first endeavor be
A Christian life to live.
And in this holy parting hour
Do Thou our witness be,
That naught shall ever rule our hearts
But heavenly charity.
