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,

Full Text

1 Day of God, so sweet and fair,
Call us now to praise and prayer,
Gift of God to mortals giv’n
Foretaste of the joy of heav’n.

2 When the week of labor ends,
And the peace of heav’n descends,
O how sweet it is to meet
At our holy Saviour’s feet!

3 Gracious Lord, we look to Thee
For Thy blessing, rich and free;
May Thy gospel’s glorious sound
Echo all the world around.

4 Bless and keep us, Lord, we pray,
Let Thy presence light our way,
Turn to us Thy loving face,
Grant us everlasting peace.

Amen.
