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. 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.
