Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 clover blossoms sweet,
Are blooming at our feet,
Each tiny cup is lifted up
With perfume sweet to greet.
The dandelions gay
Like little ones at play
Are here and there and everywhere
The live-long summer day.

Refrain:
They come from God above
Sweet gifts for you and me.

2 The daisies seem to be,
Fair stars for you and me,
So free and bright, so pure and white,
These dear day-stars we see.
The buttercups of gold
So many sunbeams hold
They fill the hours with golden show’rs,
Their wealth is never told. [Refrain]

3 O, summer blossoms dear,
We’re bending very near.
Your message sweet, to us repeat
Your words we’ll try to hear.
The blossoms seem to say,
All in their own sweet way,
From God above, whose name is Love,
We come to you today. [Refrain]
