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 Jack Frost has been around again,
He’s nipped the summer flow’rs,
He’s changed the color of the trees
In all the woodland bow’rs.

Refrain:
Jack Frost is here again,
Jack Frost is here again,
O yes, its very plain to see
Jack Frost is here again.

2 He’s turned the leaves that once were green,
To red and gold and brown,
And then he’s called the wildest wind
To come and shake them down. [Refrain]

3 He loves to pinch our rosy cheeks,
Our fingers and our toes,
He’s full of mischief and of fun
As everybody knows. [Refrain]
