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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 The children’s Sabbath comes again,
With birds and flowers bright,
With earthly fruits and gentle rain,
And floods of sunshine light.

All nature’s voices loud proclaim
God’s goodness great and free,
Let all the children praise his name
With glad, sweet melody.

2 The passing year God’s love has blest,
The hills with music ring,
The pastures now with flocks are drest,
The valleys shout and ring. [Refrain]

3 Sing unto God who made the day,
Whose praise the night prolongs,
Winter and Summer own his sway,
The earth to him belongs. [Refrain]

4 From sea to sea, in temples fair,
Today his children meet,
From north to south we breathe a prayer
And worship at his feet. [Refrain]
