Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I hail the day of sacred joy
That brings me to my Saviour’s side;
With that blest throng who love the Lord
May I for evermore abide!

O blessed day, O blessed day,
That brings me to my King!
All hail to Thee, O gracious Lord,
With grateful voice I sing.

2 My heart is warm with fervent love
As to the Lord my vows I pay;
The solemn covenant is sealed,
And I am His this blessed day! [Refrain]

3 Still there is work for me to do!
It may be but a lowly task,
But yet to do His blessed will
Is all the glory I can ask! [Refrain]
