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.

Our rally day

Representative Text

1. Once more we greet each other here,
The message we obey,
To rally with our songs of cheer
On this our Rally Day.
Of all the places far and near,
Wherever we may roam;
There is no place to us so dear
As our sweet Sabbath home.

Happy, happy Rally Day!
Happy Rally Day!
We sing our merry cheerful lay,
All hail to Rally Day!

2. We gather once again to sing
To study read and pray;
To sound the praises of our King,
On this our Rally Day.
'Tis here we learn the precious truth
That points the way to life;
To love the Lord in days of youth,
And shun all sin and strife. [Refrain]

3. Though now we meet the change will come,
The years will speed away;
But we can ne'er forget this home,
Nor our brought Rally Day.
And when at last the Lord shall call
The roll of all his own,
Then may we rally one and all,
Around the great white throne. [Refrain]
