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.

Songs of gladness

We come with songs of gladness

Author: Violet E. King
Published in 17 hymnals

Representative Text

1 We come with songs of gladness
To praise our God and King,
And for his love and mercy
Our grateful tribute bring.
The blessings of his bounty
Have crowned with joy our days;
Then sing we Alleluia,
And thankful voices raise.

Sing the songs of gladness,
Uplift the shout of praise;
Let every voice and heart rejoice
In God always.

2 We praise thee for earth’s beauty,
And for the sky’s blue dome;
We praise thee for our country;
We praise thee for our home;
We praise thee for thy gospel,
And for a Saviour’s love;
We praise thee for the promise
Of endless life above. [Refrain]

3 The angels lift their anthems
Of heav’nly joy on high,
And fill thy courts with music
In songs that never die.
And when beyond the river
We reach the city fair,
We’ll sing the song of gladness
With sweeter rapture there. [Refrain]
