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

1 Welcome the quiet Sabbath dawn,
Lighting the mountain and the lawn,
Telling how Jesus burst the grave,
Rising in power to save.
Welcome the ringing Sabbath bell,
Sounding along thro’ grove and dell,
Summoning to the house of prayer;
Come, for the Lord is there.

Refrain:
Welcome, sweet day, oft wafted by,
Freighted with blessings from on high;
Emblem of endless rest in Heaven,
Through the Redeemer given.

2 Welcome the school where children meet,
Sitting around their teachers’ feet,
Hearing the story ever new,
Jesus has died for you.
Welcome the courts of Zion, where
Christians convene for praise and prayer;
Welcome the Gospel from above,
Given to us in love. [Refrain]

3 Welcome God’s grace within my heart,
Never from Jesus may I part,
Never forget His love to me,
Coming so rich, so free.
Welcome the crown laid up in store,
After my conflict shall be o’er,
Welcome a home with Christ above,
Bright with eternal love. [Refrain]
