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,
Harry Plantinga

XXXVII. By what amazing Ways

1. By what amazing Ways,
The Lord vouchafes t'explain
The Wonders of his Sov'reign Grace
Towards the Sons of Men!

2 He shews us first, how foul
Our Natur's made by Sin;
Then teaches the believing Soul
The way to make it clean.

3 Our Baptism first declares,
What need we've all to cleanse;
Then shews that Christ to all God's Heirs
Can Purity dispense.

4 Water the Body laves:
And, if 'tis done by Faith,
The Blood of Jesus surely saves
The sinful Soul from Death.

5 Water no Man denies:
But, Brethren, rest not there:
'Tis Faith in Christ that justifies
And makes the conscience clear.

6 Baptiz'd into his Death,
We rise to Life divine.
The Holy Spirit works the Faith;
And Water is the Sign.
