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 Wake a song of grateful praise
For the glad returning days;
Praising him who reigns above,
Rules in wisdom, might and love.
Gladly, freely let us sing,
Bring the humble offering;
Praises to our Lord belong,
Praise him, praise him with a song.

We will praise him, ev’ry one,
Praise him, praise him with a song;
Joyfully the sound prolong,
We will praise him with a song.

2 We adore the loving power
That has tinted us the flower;
Charmed the sounds we love to hear,
Saddened hearts to sweetly cheer.
In his goodness we rejoice,
Grateful for the tuneful voice;
We so gladly, freely raise,
In the singing of his praise. [Refrain]

3 Gracious Father, bless thy name
For thy mercies o’er the same;
Oh, thou changeless and divine,
Grant us constancy like thine!
In the life we love and move,
And our gratitude we prove;
For the wondrous life we live,
Highest praises we will give. [Refrain]
