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 must thank our Father

Representative Text

1. We must thank our Father dear
For this Sabbath morning,
For the time he gives us here
From the Bible learning.

We will learn, we will learn
All the lessons taught us;
Then each Sabbath we will know
More and more of Jesus.

2. We must learn like him to be,
Always kind and loving;
Those around us then will see
From his Word we're learning. [Chorus]

3. We will try to keep this day,
Put away our playing,
Sing and study, read and pray,
Holy Sabbath keeping. [Chorus]
