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

Now brethren, to your homes repair

Now brethren, to your homes repair

Representative Text

1 Now, brethren, to your homes repair;
And, as you pass along,
Employ your hearts in humble prayer,
And raise the cheerful song.

2 Praise God for what your ears have heard,
For what your eyes have seen;
Praise him for what has here occurred,
For all you feel within.

3 Improve the strength you here have gained,
To do God's holy will;
Improve the knowledge here attained,
To love and serve him still.

4 Let not the world have cause to say
You've served your God for naught;
But grow in grace, from day to day,
As you have here been taught.

5 Farewell! and to your homes repair;
And, as you pass along,
Employ your hearts in humble prayer,
And raise to God a song.
