We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Welcome, sacred day of rest! Sweet repose from worldly care

Representative Text

1 Welcome, sacred day of rest!
Sweet repose from worldly care,
Day above all days the best,
When our souls for heaven prepare.

2 Gracious Lord, we love this day,
When we hear thy holy word;
When we sing thy praise, and pray;
Earth can no such joys afford.

3 But a better rest remains,
Heavenly Sabbaths, happier days,
Rest from sin, and rest from pains,
Endless joys, and endless praise.
