Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Representative Text

1 Winter’s stormy days are over now,
Spring is here,
Tender buds of green on ev’ry bough,
Open near,
Gray and gloomy skies are growing bright,
Warm and blue,
All the world is full of joy and light,
Life is born anew.

Spring has come, Spring has come,
Sing with delight, for the Spring has come,
Give Him praise, glad songs raise,
Hail the golden days!
Spring has come, Spring has come,
Sing with delight, for the Spring has come,
Darkness past, light at last,
Spring has come.

2 Soon the groves will ring with birds-notes sweet,
All day long,
Each returning sign of Spring they’ll greet
With their song,
Barren hill and field will brightly glow
With fair flow’rs,
Warm and fragrant winds will softly blow,
Bringing sunny hours. [Refrain]

3 So from all the storm and stress of life
Joys arise,
After weary hours of toil and strife,
Smiling skies,
After all the fear and doubt of night,
Faith made strong,
After dark’ning clouds, the Easter light,
Then the victor-song. [Refrain]
