Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Once again, once again, workers of another year,
We greet you all this happy day,
To grasp the friendly hand,
To speak the cheering word;
We greet you all in this dear place,
To sweetly praise the love and goodness of the Lord.
Behold the year with all its labors o’er,
As from our sight it fades away;
Behold the year that is another gift
To labor on with happy hearts from day to day.

For Jesus is our Master,
And we love his service.
Tell as we gather what progress we have made,
Speak of your labors, in deed and word;
Here as we listen,
Cheered by your faithful work,
Let all unite in praise,—praise to the Lord.
The coming year has work for all,
And may the Master keep us ever true and strong;
Rejoice today, this happy day,
And may the Master bless us as we sing our song;
Then Tell as we gather what progress we have made,
Speak of your labors, in deed and word;
Here as we listen,
Cheered by your faithful work,
Let all unite in praise,—praise to the Lord.

Once again, once again, workers of another year,
We greet you all this happy day,
To grasp the friendly hand,
To speak the cheering word;
We greet you all in this dear place,
To sweetly praise the love and goodness of the Lord.
Behold the year with all its labors o’er,
As from our sight it fades away;
Behold the year that is another gift
To labor on with happy hearts from day to day.
From day to day.
