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 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.”

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]
