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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Glad hosannas upward rise,
Swelling thro’ the radiant skies—
For the Lord of Hosts is here,
And His glory crowns the year.
Spring her beauty has displayed;
In her verdant robes arrayed,
All the earth is fair and gay,
Praising God the live-long day.

Glad hosannas upward rise,
Swelling through the radiant skies—
For the Lord of Hosts is here,
And His glory crowns the year.

2 Led in pastures green are we,
Daily mercies spared to see,
Clothed and fed with loving hand,
At our Father’s blest command;
So our praise is meet and just,
And we sing because we must—
Sing thro’ love that knows not fear,
For His glory crowns the year. [Refrain]

3 O how mighty is His love,
Circling all the skies above!
O how wondrous is His grace,
Filling ev’ry secret place!
Times and seasons, praise and song,
All to Him alone belong;
Let our worship be sincere,
For His glory crowns the year. [Refrain]
