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 We come today from near and far,
The light of hope our guiding star;
In Jesus’ name we gather here,
For strength and words of cheer.

O wondrous words, sweet words of cheer,
That Jesus speaks in tones so clear:
Still may they grow to us more dear,
While gathered in His name.

2 ‘Tis good to meet in His blest name,
And all His wondrous love proclaim:
To find the way of life more dear,
And hear glad words of cheer. [Refrain]

3 O Saviour, bless our Christian band,
For Thee enlisted, heart and hand;
Incline to us Thy gracious ear,
And give us words of cheer. [Refrain]

4 And when we leave this hallowed place,
Oh, grant to us Thy heavenly grace;
In all our way, oh, be Thou near.
To speak glad words of cheer. [Refrain]
