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.

1 Welcome with gladness the children’s day,
Welcome the day,
Welcome the day.
Flowers are speeding the hours away,
Filling all hearts with a song.
Roses with smiling in fragrance grow,
Sending their perfume throughout all the land.
Wonders of nature they humbly show,
Heaven is blessing with bounteous hand.

Roses are blooming,
Blooming in fragrance and beauty,
Roses are blooming;
Roses are blooming today,
Bright in the sunshine, when roses bloom,
Banishing all of the winter’s gloom;
Flowers are blooming on hiss and plain;
They’re praising the Lord again.

2 Summer and flowers have come again;
Flowers have come,
Flower have come;
Praising the Lord with a glad amen,
Bringing their tokens of love.
Welcome the summer: Its days so fair;
Welcome the woodland: Its foliage green,
Sing to the Saviour, his blessings share,
God and his goodness are ev’rywhere seen. [Refrain]

3 Praise to the Lord! Be his glory shown;
Praise to the Lord,
Praise to the Lord.
Praise to the Lord! Make his blessings known;
Praise to the Saviour today.
Praise ye the Lord, ev’ry hill and plain,
Rainbow of summer and wave of the sea;
Children of men join the glad refrain,
Honor and praise to the Lord ever be. [Refrain]
