Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. Come to the place of prayer,
the day is past and gone,
And on the silent air,
the voice of praise is borne:
Sweet is the hour of rest,
pleasant the heart’s low sigh,
The glow within our breast,
and the hope beyond the sky.

2. Yes, tuneful is the sound
of Christians as they sing;
Welcome the glory round,
shed from the Spirit’s wing;
But bliss more sweet and still
than aught on earth e’er gave,
Our yearning souls shall fill
in the world beyond the grave.

3. Earth with her dreams shall fade,
our bodies turn to dust;
Our souls shall soar and sing
in mansions of the just;
We lift our trusting eyes
from hills our fathers trod,
To quiet in the skies,
to the Sabbath of our God.
