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,

736. Heavenly Father, Hear Thy Children

1 Heav'nly Father, hear Thy children,
As we come to Thee in prayer.
Help us always to remember
God is with us ev'rywhere.

God is with us! God is with us!
God is with us ev'rywhere.

2 Keep our hearts and minds from evil,
Help us walk in Jesus' way.
Make us loving, kind, and truthful,
Keep us safely night and day. [Chorus]
