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 Twine your blossoms, wreathe your garlands,
Let the whole glad world rejoice
In its sunshine, in its glory;
Lift in song each happy voice.

Hail to the Children’s Day,
Hail to the Children’s Day;
Sunbeams and blossoms brightly are blooming,
Hail to the Children’s Day.

2 Roses, in their fragrant beauty,
With the snowy lilies wreathe;
Sweetest truths the blossoms teach us,
Lessons of God’s love they breathe. [Refrain]

3 Lift your hearts, in glad thanksgiving,
Unto him who gives the flow’rs,
Golden sunshine, summer beauty,
And the Children’s Day’s glad hours. [Refrain]
