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,

S13. O be joyful in the Lord all ye lands

1. O be joyful in the Lord all ye lands;
serve the Lord with gladness
and come before his presence with a song. [Ant.]

2. Be ye sure that the Lord he is God;
it is he that hath made us and not we ourselves;
we are his people and the sheep of his pasture. [Ant.]

3. O go your way into his gates with thanksgiving
and into his courts with praise;
be thankful unto him and speak good of his Name. [Ant.]

4. For the Lord is gracious;
his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth from generation to generation. [Ant.]

5. Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
As it was in the beginning, is now, and
will be for ever. Amen. [Ant.]
