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,
Harry Plantinga

Introductory/Framing Text

For Piano Accompaniment Only:
  • Options for alternative accompaniment:
    • In the right hand, consider playing chords only on beats 1 and 3, keeping the slow, steady, two-beat-per-measure feel.
    • In the left hand, if the 10ths are difficult to reach, either roll them or play just the bass note.
  • Keep the same steady tempo as the volume and the tessitura rises.

Additional Prayers

Maker of heaven and earth,
as you rescued Daniel from the lions, protect us from the evil that would consume us.
As you saved Noah from the flood, keep us from drowning in trouble.
You have freed us from the power of sin, blessed the work of our minds and hands,
and given us eternal life—all through Jesus Christ.
We praise and thank you, now and always. Amen.
— Psalms for All Seasons (http://www.psalmsforallseasons.org)

Composer Information

Eelco Vos (b. 1972) is a Dutch composer and pianist. He studied at the Conservatory of Music in Utrecht and obtained degrees in music education and classical piano. He studied under master pianist Alwin Bär, and took master classes from Ivan Moravec and Ferenc Rados. For several years Vos played with an acoustic band, and many of his songs were aired on the radio. Vos grew up playing the piano and singing the Genevan psalm settings at home, school and church. Hoping to revitalize the singing of the Genevan psalms, Vos founded The Psalm Project, a group of musicians from across the Netherlands who rework some of the older tunes or write new ones to fit the text. Vos is the composer and pianist. The Psalm Project has toured across the Netherlands, and come multiple times to Canada and the United States.
