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.

When the buds of spring

Representative Text

1 When the buds of spring are op'ning,
When the earth is closed in green,
And the gentle rains descending,
Wake to life a power unseen;
When the fragrant flow'rs are blooming,
In the summer sunlight clear,
Then a sweet voice whispers
God is very near.
Then a sweet voice whispers
God is very near.

2 When the drafting snows of winter,
In white folds the earth enshroud,
When above the storm clouds gather,
And the tempest's voice is loud;
When the roar of ocean breakers,
Wildly surging, strikes the ear,
Then a sweet voice whispers
God is very near.
Then a sweet voice whispers
God is very near.

3 Thus it is in life's bright summer,
When with joy the heart is filled,
When we see the silver lining,
Of the clouds that bode us ill;
Or when deed, dark waves of trouble,
Gather round our pathway here,
Still the sweet voice whispers
God is very near.
Still the sweet voice whispers
God is very near.
