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,

I.CXLVII. 'Tis from the treasures of his word

1 'Tis from the Treasures of his Word
I borrow Titles or my Lord;
Nor Art nor Nature can supply
Sufficient Forms of Majesty.

2 Bright Image of the Father's Face,
Shining with undiminish'd Rays;
Th' Eternal God's Eternal Son,
The Heir and Partner of his Throne.

3 The King of Kings, the Lord most high,
Writes his own Name upon his Thigh;
He wears a Garment dipt in Blood,
And breaks the Nations with his Rod.

4 Where Grace can neither melt nor move,
The Lamb resents his injur'd Love,
Awakes his Wrath without Delay,
And Judah's Lion tears the Prey.

5 But when for Works of Peace he comes,
What winning Titles he assumes?
Light of the World; and Life of Men;
Nor bears those Characters in vain.

6 With tender Pity in his Heart,
He acts the Mediator's Part;
A Friend and Brother he appears,
And well fulfils the Name he wears.

7 At Length the Judge his Throne ascends,
Divides the Rebels from his Friends,
And Saints in full Fruition prove
His rich Variety of Love.
