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, 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

The Day Full of Grace

Full 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.
