Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. 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, 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 at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 , or you can click the Donate button below.

On behalf of the entire team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Rejoice, the Lord is King!
Your Lord and King adore.
Rejoice, give thanks and sing,
and triumph evermore.
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice,
rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

2 His kingdom cannot fail;
he rules o'er earth and heav'n;
the keys of death and hell
to Christ the Lord are giv'n.
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice,
rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

3 He sits at God's right hand
till all his foes submit,
bow down at his command
and fall beneath his feet.
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice,
rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

4 Rejoice in glorious hope;
for Christ, the Judge, shall come
to gather all his saints
to their eternal home.
We soon shall hear the archangel's voice;
the trump of God shall sound, rejoice!
