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 O season sweet when hill and vale
Are all in beauty drest,
When silent is the raging gale
And waves have sunk to rest,
O time of joy and song and light,
We hail thy shining hours,
We bid farewell to Winter’s night
And welcome thee with flow’rs.

Refrain:
O time of joy and song and light,
We hail thy golden hours,
We bid farewell to Winter’s night,
And welcome thee with flow’rs,
And welcome, and welcome,
And welcome thee with flow’rs.

2 Each flow’r that rises from the sod,
To make the world more fair,
Reveals the wondrous pow’r of God,
And whispers of His care.
Each star whose splendor is unfurled
Though midnight’s arches deep,
Proclaims the pow’r that rules the World
With love that ne’er shall sleep. [Refrain]
