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,

364. O Lord, I sing with mouth and heart

1 O Lord, I sing with mouth and heart,
Joy of my soul! to Thee;
To earth Thy knowledge I impart,
As it is known to me.

2 Thou art the Fount of grace, I know,
And Spring so fall and free,
Whence saving health and goodness flow
Each day so bounteously.

3 Thou feedest us from year to year,
And constant dost abide:
When danger fills our hearts with fear,
With help art at our side.

4 With patience dost Thou ev'r abide,
Nor long Thine anger keep,
But castest all our sins aside
Into the ocean's deep.

5 Our deepest needs dost Thou supply,
Thou giv’st what lasts for aye,
Thou lead’st us to our home on high,
When hence we pass away.

6 Then up, my heart, rejoice and sing,
A Cheerful trust maintain!
For God, the Source of ev'rything,
Thy portion will remain.
