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

76. Psalm 116

1 How can I ever thank the Lord
for all his gifts to me?
I'll raise salvation's cup, and call
on God's name joyfully.

2 I'll bring you offerings of thanks,
call on the name of God;
fulfil my promises among
the people of the Lord.

3 I'll pay my vows in God's own house,
the temple of the Lord,
there in your midst, Jerusalem.
Praise God with one accord!
