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

Representative Text

1 Oh, swiftly the moments are flying,
That fill all the hours of our way;
And now they have bro’t you the milestone
That marks your natal day.

Refrain:
While years come and years go,
They roll on as streams flow,
Oh, live them for Jesus He wants them we know,
Sweet years of your life for Him.

2 And now the new year is beginning,
Oh, pledge it anew to the Lord,
And seek to obey His commandments,
As written in his word. [Refrain]

3 We wish for thee brightest of blessings,
That angels your footsteps may guide,
That vict’ry be yours in life’s battles,
And joy with you abide. [Refrain]

4 And should the dear Lord send from heaven,
To bear you away far above;
Be yours thro’ the spaces eternal,
The realm of endless love. [Refrain]
