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

We come, we come, with singing

Representative Text

1 We come, we come with singing,
Our happy voices ringing,
Glad welcome unto all.
We love to meet each other,
Each little friend and brother,
We love to meet our Saviour,
The dearest friend of all.

Jesus is here, Angels are near;
Sing, sing, praises sing,
Jesus is here, Angels are near;
Sing, sing praises sing.

2 We come, we come rejoicing,
Our happy voices ringing
Glad tidings unto all.
We sing, we sing the story.
The sweet, the sweet old story,
How Jesus came from glory,
And suffered for us all. [Chorus]

3 Dear Saviour, grant thy blessing
While we, our wants confessing
Before thee humbly fall.
O, bless us in our praising,
O, help us in our praying.
And let us hear thee speaking
Within these sacred walls. [Chorus]
