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.

Representative Text

1. We are gathered today in our Sunday school,
With our hearts full of grateful praise;
We rejoice, we rejoice, as we hither come,
That the Lord doth direct our ways.

Refrain
We would join in the song of welcome:
Welcome one and all today!
Let us strive with our might e’er to do the right,
And to seek for the lambs astray.

2. We would go forth with zeal in our Master’s name,
And would bring many wand’rers in;
We would tell them of Christ, who from glory came,
E’en to save them from death and sin. [Refrain]

3. One and all with a will let us work today,
To restore to the Lord His own;
Leading souls to the bright and the shining way,
Serving Jesus, and Him alone. [Refrain]
