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.

Representative Text

1 Rejoice, rejoice for tidings glad are in the very air,
A song of praise we hear, it echoes far and near,
“As God our Maker watches earth and sky with tireless care,
So He watches over you and me.”

We see His loving care and power,
In bird and flower, in sun and shower,
But what a dearer, deeper, tend’rer care,
Our Father gives to you and me.

2 Rejoice, rejoice in shining skies, in morn or sunset light,
A blessed word they tell, we know and love it well,
“As God our Father plans the dawn, the noon, the starry night,
He will plan the days for you and me.” [Refrain]

3 Rejoice, rejoice in sun and rain, in cloud or shining ray,
In ev’ry precious sign that tells the word divine,
“Although with great and precious gifts He blesses earth each day,
Even more He blesses you and me.” [Refrain]
