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.
Harry Plantinga

With joy we tread

Representative Text

1 With joy Thine earthly courts we tread,
And here we worship Thee,
Who left the regions of the dead
For immortality;
Our thankful voices here we raise
To Him who reigns above;
We bring the tribute of our praise
For Thy redeeming love.

2 To Thee, O Lord, we join in prayer,
To Thee we raise our song;
We hear the precepts of Thy word,
Where all Thy people throng;
In the dear name of Christ our King,
We to the Father pray;
Contrite and broken hearts we bring,
On this most holy day.

3 Lord, meet us in this holy place,
Thy dwelling here below;
Refresh us with Thy richest grace,
And set our hearts aglow—
Aglow with sweet and fervent love
For all Thy goodness shown;
And raise us from this lower world
To Thy celestial throne.
