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.

Representative Text

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]
