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,

144. GOD the Supreme Governor; or, Magistrates warned

1 Among th' Assemblies of the Great
A greater Ruler takes his Seat;
The GOD of Heav'n, as Judge surveys
Those Gods on Earth, and all their Ways.

2 Why will ye, then, frame wicked Laws?
Or why support th' unrighteous Cause?
When will ye once defend the Poor,
That Sinners vex the Saints no more?

3 They know not, Lord, nor will they know;
Dark are the Ways in which they go;
Their Name of earthly gods is vain,
For they shall fall and die like Men.

3 Arise, O Lord, and let thy Son
Possess his universal Throne,
And rule the Nations with his Rod;
He is our Judge, and he our GOD.
