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 Don't forget the Sabbath,
The Lord our God hath blest,
Of all the week the brightest,
Of all the week the best;
It brings repose from labor,
It tells of joy divine,
Its beams of light descending,
With heav'nly beauty shine.

Chorus:
Welcome, welcome, ever welcome,
Blessed Sabbath day.
Welcome, welcome, ever welcome,
Blessed Sabbath day.

2 Keep the Sabbath holy,
And worship him today,
Who said to his disciples
"I am the Living Way;"
And if we meekly follow
Our Saviour here below,
He'll give us of the Fountain
Whose streams eternal flow. [Chorus]

3 Day of sacred pleasure!
Its golden hours we'll spend
In thankful hymns to Jesus,
The children's dearest friend;
O gentle, loving Saviour,
How good and kind thou art,
How precious is thy promise
To dwell in ev'ry heart! [Chorus]
