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.
1 Children singing, sweet bells ringing!
Welcome, welcome, happy day!
Pray'rs of thousands now are winging
Up to heav'n their silent way.
Welcome, welcome, joyous welcome;
Teachers, scholars, welcome here!
2 'Tis an hour of happy meeting,
We have met for praise and pray'r;
But the hour is short and fleeting;
This is why we're early here. [Chorus]
3 We'll not keep our teachers waiting,
While we tarry by the way,
Nor disturb the school reciting,
'Tis the holy Sabbath day. [Chorus]Source: Christ in Song: for all religious services nearly one thousand best gospel hymns, new and old with responsive scripture readings (Rev. and Enl.) #273
