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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1. The earth is hushed in silence,
Its cares now flee away,
Let all things bow in reverence,
On this the Lord’s own day.

O praise and pray on this,
The Lord’s own day.

2. The bells are sweetly ringing,
Their clear toned voices say:
Ye people, come and worship
On this, the Lord’s own day. [Refrain]

3. Come, all ye thankful people;
Why should our hearts delay
To greet the Lord of Heaven
On this His holy day? [Refrain]
