As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 Lord of life, on this Thy day,
We have met to praise and pray;
Gather us, O God our king,
’Neath the shadow of Thy wing.

Refrain:
Brightest day of all the seven,
Type of endless day in Heaven,
On this day, with heavenly bread,
May we, Lord, by Thee be fed.

2 May our praises to Thee given,
Mingle with the songs of Heaven;
May our prayers, like incense, be
Pleasing as they rise to Thee. [Refrain]

3 Close, O Christ, to Thee we draw;
Clear to us now make Thy law;
Open Thou our eyes to see
How each lesson points to Thee. [Refrain]
