Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 , or you can click the Donate button below.

On behalf of the entire team,
Harry Plantinga

Finding subject/topics linked with specific hymn

You are here

When planning a service, I find the topic/subject search very handy for getting lists of hymns to consider.  But at the moment I am indexing a privately printed hymnal used at a church I work for, and wonder if there is any way to go from the text to the topics it is linked to. 

For the sake of my self-esteem, I hope that this is not a painfully obvious feature, but nevertheless I'm not spotting it.  Your help will be deeply appreciated.


You can find topics for a hymn text by going to the list of instances at the bottom and turning on the column for Subjects. I'm not sure this answers your question, so if it does not, let me know.

That's just what I was looking for.  Thank you!
