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

Notes: Take care that the timing is determined by the text and not by the apparent note values. Particularly when phrases have only one or two syllables under the initial reciting tone, do not stall but move immediately to the next word. In some of the cadences, some syllables do need to be stretched over two notes. To add variety, have a quartet sing in alternation with the congregation. The organ and/or choir can help to support the congregational singing and prevent the tempo from dragging.
