Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full 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.

Refrain:
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]
