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.

Representative Text

1 Lilies of the valley,
White as drifted snow,
With the summer’s beauty,
Now are bending low,
How their wondrous incense,
Ever seems to rise,
Like a glad thanksgiving,
To the summer skies.

Lilies of the valley,
Seem to softly say,
“There is One more lovely,
Fairer than the day,
We are sent as symbols,
Of the One above,
Who is pure and spotless,
And whose name is Love.

2 Lilies of the valley,
All in silence stand,
Yet they breathe a lesson,
In the summer land,
O they tell the story,
Old, yet always new,
Of the King of glory,
Ever pure and true. [Refrain]
