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.

Now our worship sweet is o'er

Representative Text

1 Now our worship sweet is o'er--
Singing, praying, teaching, hearing:
Let us gladly God adore
For His gracious strength and cheering.
Bless His Name, who fain would save us,
For the rich repast He gave us.

2 Now the blessing cheers our heart,
And the service all is ended,
Let us joyfully depart,
Be our souls to God commended:
His good Spirit ever guide us,
And with all things well provide us.

3 Let our going out be blest,
Bless our entrance in like measure;
Bless, O Lord, our toil and rest,
Bless our bread, our grief, and pleasure;
Be in death Thy blessing given;
And make us blessèd heirs of heaven!
