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.

Representative Text

1 In the dawning of the morning,
How our hearts with praises swell,
When we think of God’s great goodness,
Which we here with rapture tell.
Oh, we love Him and adore Him—
Worship Him in song and prayer—
As we humbly wait before Him,
We His righteousness declare.

Oh, praise the Lord for His grace and truth,
For the peace we have today,
For the light that gleams like morning beams,
All along the holy way!

2 As the silent shades of darkness
Lift their veil from o’er the skies,
See the orb of day, refulgent
In His glowing splendor, rise.
So our night of sin is over,
Past are all our mourning days:
For the light of full salvation,
Lord, accept our grateful praise. [Refrain]

3 Start the wave of music rolling
On the softly floating breeze;
Join the feathered songsters’ warble,
As they sing among the trees.
Wake the song of inspiration,
Ere we cross the vale of death;
Laud His name in all creation,
Every creature having breath. [Refrain]
