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,

259. A Hymn of Glory Let Us Sing

1 A hymn of glory let us sing,
new hymns throughout the world shall ring;
By a new way none ever trod
Christ shares once more the throne of God.

2 You are a present joy, O Christ,
triumphant love once sacrificed,
And great the light in you we see
to guide us to eternity.

3 O risen Christ, ascended now,
to your blessed name all knees shall bow;
You are, while endless ages run,
in Triune Godhead ever One.
