We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Dear Lord, we would thy praises sing On this thy holy day

Dear Lord, we would thy praises sing On this thy holy day

Representative Text

1 Dear Lord, we would thy praises sing
On this thy holy day;
With grateful hearts our tribute bring;
To thee our homage pay.

2 This day, which thou for us hast blessed,
And set apart as thine,
This day, when God himself did rest,
Hath honors all divine.

3 Lord, we would turn away our feet
From this thy holy day,
And call its rest and worship sweet,
Not doing our own way.

4 That we may thus restore the breach
Which in thy law is made,
We need thy grace our hearts to teach,
We need thy Spirit's aid.

5 O, give us wisdom from above
To worship thee aright,
Till we shall meet Him whom we love,
And faith is lost in sight.
