Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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 Through the changing seasons
Of the changing year,
With its light and shadow,
With its hope and fear;
Through each glad fulfillment,
And each sad defeat,
We have safely journeyed,
And again we meet.

Refrain:
God hath kindly led us
Through this changing year,
By His guiding providence
We assemble here.

2 Records past and present
We may now survey,
At this pleasant milestone
In life’s onward way:
Knowledge claims new power,
Truth her might extends,
And the Master knoweth
New and loyal friends. [Refrain]

3 From this festal service
To our work anew,
With a quickened purpose
Hearts both strong and true:
Father, lead Thy forces,
One united band—
Ever on to conquest
’Neath their king’s command. [Refrain]
