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 Beautiful blossoms
We bring today,
From the dim forest
And meadow-way,
Brightly they’re smiling
Seeming to tell;
“God rules in heaven
All is well.”

Refrain:
Beautiful blossoms
Of the wood and the grove,
Telling of Jesus
And his wonderful love!
Beautiful flowers this the message ye tell,
That God rules in Heaven all is well.

2 No flow’r so humble
But may impart,
Message of gladness
Unto some heart,
O like the blossoms
We too may seek,
Some joyful message
Softly to speak. [Refrain]

3 Roses and lilies,
Violets blue,
Long we have waited,
To welcome you,
Brightly you’re smiling
Seeming to tell—
“God rules in heaven
All is well.” [Refrain]
