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.

Representative Text

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]
