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.

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]
