We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Six days of toil and care

Six days of toil and care

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Six days of toil and care,
I bid you all adieu;
And now, O peaceful Sabbath hours,
I gladly welcome you.

2 My heart with rapture turns
To Eden's vale so fair;
Then forward to the heavenly world,
And views the Sabbath there.

3 Sweet day of rest, through thee
Shall memory faithful prove
To him who made the earth and sea,
And starry worlds above.

4 Each Sabbath spent aright
Shall bring us nearer thee,
Till in that glorious land of light
We're made forever free.
