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, welcome, Sabbath morning!
We’ve no task, nor toil today;
And the Sabbath morn returning,
Tells a week has passed away.

Refrain
Welcome, welcome, quiet morning!
We’ve no task nor toil today;
And the Sabbath morn returning,
Tells a week has passed away.

2. Let us think how time is gliding,
Soon the longest life departs;
Nothing human is abiding,
To the trust of youthful hearts. [Refrain]

3. Swift our childhood’s dreams are passing,
Like the startled doves they fly;
Or bright clouds in fleetest chasing,
Out on yonder quiet sky. [Refrain]

4. Now, dear Lord, our prayer we raise Thee,
From our young and happy hearts;
Never let us cease to praise Thee;
Never from Thy fear depart. [Refrain]

5. Then when years have gathered o’er us,
And the world begins to fade;
Heaven’s bright realms will rise before us,
Treasures that will never fade. [Refrain]
