Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 thank thee, Father, that I live
To see this day of thine:
This day of rest, this day of peace,
Proclaims thy love divine.

2 To-day, I thank thee, most of all,
For thy best gift of love;
The gift of Christ, whose saving grace
We all, to-day, may prove.

3 And when the evening shades of life
Bring slumber and repose,
Oh, may I see thee face to face,
Where Sabbaths never close!
