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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 When the earth is bright with dew,
Thank the Lord for mercies new.
Bless Him for the sun that’s ris’n,
For the flush of early dawn,
Thank Him that the night is past;
Praise Him all the beauteous morn.

2 When the sun is risen high,
Bathing golden all the sky;
Bless the Lord the morn is o’er,
Safe its hours have gone so soon;
Nature now is wide awake;
Praise Him for the glorious noon.

3 When the stars peep out at last,
Thank the Lord the day is past.
Bless Him for its varied scenes,
For its many blessings bright;
Thank Him that we’re nearer Heav’n,
Praise Him, bless Him all the night.
