Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat 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 by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. Tenderly, soft and clear music and love we hear,
In our Sabbath dwelling, songs of rapture swelling.
Gently their wings they blend, sweetly their voices blend,
Songs of holy rapture swelling;
List to their carol, joyful now they say,
Come to the Savior, gladly haste away,
Come to the banquet waiting you today,
Waiting for one and all.

Refrain
Tenderly, soft and clear music and love we hear,
In our Sabbath dwelling, songs of rapture swelling.
Gently their wings they blend, sweetly their voices blend,
Songs of holy rapture swelling.

2. Over the morning land, over its golden strand,
Oft they roam delighted, hand in hand united,
Over the land of flowers, over its vernal bowers,
Love and music roam united.
Now, on their pinions, fair and snowy white,
Laved in a fountain, sparkling, pure and bright,
Come as an arrow from the vales of light,
Comfort they bring to all. [Refrain]

3. Tell us, ye sisters fair, wearing your garlands rare,
Rose and lily twining, all their charms combining,
Tell us of Him whose eye watcheth beyond the sky,
O’er our path, in beauty shining;
Still they are singing, hear their tuneful lay,
Come to the Savior, trust Him while you may,
Come to the banquet waiting you today,
Waiting for one and all. [Refrain]
