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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Text Information

First Line: Blest season, when our risen Lord


Blest season when our risen Lord. [Whitsuntide.] This hymn is No. 59 of J. H. Stewart's Selection of Psalms & Hymns for the Use of Percy Chapel, Lond., 1813, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines, where it is appointed for Monday in Whitsunweek. In common with all the hymns in the collection it is unsigned. In 1829 Josiah Pratt in included stanzas i., ii., and iv., with slight alterations, in his Psalms and Hymns, No. 66. This was repeated in some American collections, and is known to modem hymnals as “Blest day when our ascended Lord," as in the Songs for the Sanctuary, N. Y., 1865, No. 412. [William T. Brooke] -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
