Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Once more we keep the sacred day

Once more we keep the sacred day

Published in 35 hymnals

Full Text

[Boys]
1 Once more we keep the sacred day
That saw the Saviour rise;
Once more we tune our infant song
To him that rules the skies.

[Girls]
2 What numbers vainly spend these hours,
That are to Jesus due!
Children and parents, how they live!
And how they perish too!

[Boys]
3 But we, a happier few, are taught
The ways of heavenly truth;
We hail one more the plan of love
That pities wand'ring youth

[Girls]
4 Our foolish hearts are prone to err;
Too oft we find it so;
O may the God of grace forgive,
And better hearts bestow.

[Boys]
5 Teach us the way, while here we learn
To read thy holy word;
Bless all the kind instruction giv'n,
And make us thine, O Lord.

[Both]
6 Praise to our God, and thanks to those
Who thus our souls befriend;
While the rich benefit we reap,
On them thy blessing send.
