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.

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

Happy, happy Sunday, Day of rest and peace

Full Text

1 Happy, happy Sunday!
Day of rest and peace,
Which from earthly labours
Bringeth us release;
Day which tells of Jesus
Rising from the dead,
Day on which His members
With His grace are fed!

2 Jewish bondage ended,
Jewish rites surpassed,
On this day we worship
Christ, the First and Last;
Here in Christian freedom,
Gladly we may sing
Hymns of praise and honour
To our loving King.

3 Every week, in Jesus,
Thus do we begin,
Who redeemed and called us,
Saving us from sin;
And our week-day labours
Are for ever blest,
By the gracious worship
Of the Sunday Rest. AMEN.
