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,

484. Hvor deilig skal Guds Kirke staa

1 Hvor deilig skal Guds Kirke staa,
Og i hans Aasyn Ynde faa,
Naar alle Hjerter knytted' er
Udi eet Sind og een Begjær:
At elske ham og blive ved
At vandre frem i Kjærlighed!

2 Hvad er vort Væsen, om vi ei
Gaa Kjærligheds den rene Vei,
Og broderlig hinanden vil
Al velmeent Troskab byde til
Med sligt et Hjerte og Attraa,
Som Gud stod hos og saa derpaa?

3 Bort Vrede, Skjelsord, daarlig Harm!
I bør ei hyses i dem Barm,
Hvor Gud til Fred og salig Ro
Vil, sin Velsignelse skal bo:
Bort derfor alt, hvad skade kan
Og hindre Enigheds Forstand!

4 Gid Tunge, Læber, Sind og Mund
De kunde ret af Hjertens Grund
Forsage Trædskhed, List og Svig,
Og gjøre sig et Himmerig
Udaf den søde Venskabs Fred
Med hver Mand i Guds Kjærlighed!

5 Guds Øie ser dog al vor Daad,
Vor Tanke, Paafund, Hjertens Raad;
De Onde gaa ham ei forbi
Paa deres Ondskabs skjulte Sti,
Han ogsaa paa de Fromme ser,
Al Hjælp og Naade han dem ter.

6 Min Sjæl, agt derfor lidet om
Den Trusel, Had og Vrede, som
Dig Verdens Børn kan lægge paa,
Den skal saa snar en Vending faa,
Gak du kun frem paa Fredens Vei,
Og agt al Verdens Tummel ei!

7 O søde Gud, o gid jeg maa
Mit Hjerte ved dig dannet faa,
At du kan heliges i mig,
Til jeg dig ser i Himmerig,
Hvor hellig, hellig, hellig da
Jeg synger med Halleluja!
