We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And 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 Hymnary.org, 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 Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

XXXVI. Buried in Baptism with our Lord

1 Buried in Baptism with our Lord,
We rise with him, to Life restor'd:
Not the bare Life in Adam lost,
But richer far; for more it cost.

2 Water can cleanse the Flesh we own;
But Christ well knows, and Christ alone,
How dear to him our Cleansing stood,
Baptiz'd with Fire, and bath'd in Blood.

3 HIS was a Baptism deep indeed,
O'er Feet and Body, Hands and Head,
He in his Body purg'd our Sin:
A little Water makes us clean.

4 Not but we taste his bitter Cup;
But only he would drink it up,
To burn for us was his Desire:
And he baptizes us with Fire.

5 This Fire will not consume but melt,
How soft compar'd with that he felt!
Thus cleans'd from Filth, and purg'd from Dross,
Baptized Christian, bear the Cross.
