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 Sweetest songs now are lifting to the God above,
Ev’rywhere, Nature’s telling of His wondrous love;
Wood and field now are ringing all the happy day,
Bird-land ev’rywhere is singing
Bird-land’s sweetest lay.

Joy-notes ev’rywhere are sounding,
Join with heart and voice;
Gladness ev’rywhere abounding!
Let us all rejoice.

2 Children’s songs, like the bird-notes, drive the gloom away,
Let them sing sweetest music on this Children’s Day,
As the earth in its gladness, lifts a song of praise,
So our hearts should banish sadness,
And a glad song raise. [Refrain]

3 Let us all join the chorus in the joy of June,
Hearts aglow, faces bright and voices all in tune,
Praising God in love’s measure for His gracious care,
And the Summer’s golden treasure,
Which we freely share. [Refrain]
