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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

The Day Full of Grace

Representative Text

1 The day full of grace, which we behold
Now gently to view ascending
As God's gracious promises unfold,
Good cheer to the saints is lending,
And children of light in ev'ry land
Rejoice that the night is ending.

2 How blest was that gracious midnight hour
When God in our flesh was given.
The Dayspring appeared in light and pow'r
And spread o'er the darkened heaven.
Then rose o'er the world that Sun divine
Who gloom from our hearts has driven.

4 With joy we draw near our fatherland,
Our heavenly Father's dwelling,
Where ready for us his mansions stand,
Where heav'n with his saints is swelling,
And there we shall walk in endless light,
Forever his praises telling.
