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,

333. Jesus Is a Rock in a Weary Land

Refrain:
Jesus is a rock in a weary land,
a weary land, a weary land;
my Jesus is a rock in a weary land,
a shelter in the time of storm.

1 No one can do like Jesus,
not a mumbling word he said;
he went walking down to Lazarus’ grave,
and he raised him from the dead. [Refrain]

2 When Jesus was on earth,
the flesh was very weak;
he took a towel and girded himself
and he washed his disciples’ feet. [Refrain]

3 Yonder comes my Savior,
him whom I love so well;
he has the palm of victory
and the keys of death and hell. [Refrain]
