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.

Representative Text

1 Day after day a hand divine
Gives bounty and blessing to all,
Oft as the rays of morning shine,
New gifts to our portion will fall.
Tokens that tell of watchful care,
Of true and of tender love,
So raise a song of thanksgiving
To our Lord above.

Blessings, blessings, bountiful and free,
From God our heavenly Father,
Sent to you and to me,
Blessings, blessings, tokens of His love,
O raise a song of thanksgiving
To our Lord above.

2 Day after day our Maker sends
The sunshine, the dew and the rain,
Ruling with pow’r that never ends,
From seedtime to harvest of grain,
Ev’rything speaks His wisdom great,
And proveth His boundless love,
Then raise a song of thanksgiving
To our Lord above. [Refrain]

3 Day after day we hear and see
New lessons and symbols displayed,
Gifts from a Father’s lavish heart,
In richest abundance arrayed,
Friendship and pleasure, daily toil,
Are blessings from Him above,
So raise a song of thanksgiving
To our Lord above. [Refrain]
