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 Blessed Sabbath Home, within thy walls
We have meet to worship now;
Here love’s gifts we bring to our Savior, King,
At whose holy feet we bow.

Blessed Sabbath Home, happy Sabbath home!
Here we meet in bonds divine;
Blessed Sabbath Home; happy Sabbath Home,
What a hallowed peace is thine.

2 Blessed Sabbath Home, how oft our hearts
Turn with longing unto thee;
Where the wings of praise our glad souls upraise,
That we nearer Christ may be. [Refrain]

3 Blessed Sabbath Home, thy pleasures dear,
Are a foretaste of our joy;
When our souls shall meet in the bliss complete
That will never know alloy. [Refrain]

4 When we leave for aye this Sabbath Home,
With its many sacred ties;
In triumphant song with the saintly throng,
May we join beyond the skies. [Refrain]
