Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
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.Source: Voices of Praise: for school and church and home #27
