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

116. Psalm 116: What Shall I Render to the Lord?

1 What shall I render to the Lord
for all his benefits to me?
How shall my life, by grace restored,
give worthy thanks, O Lord, to Thee?

2 Salvation’s cup of blessing now
I take, and call upon God’s name.
Before his saints I pay my vow
and here my gratitude proclaim.

3 His saints the Lord delights to save;
their death is precious in his sight;
He has redeemed me from the grave,
and in his service I delight.

4 With thankful heart I offer now
my gift and call upon God’s name,
Before his saints I pay my vow
and here my gratitude proclaim.

5 Within his house, the house of prayer,
I dedicate myself to God.
Let all his saints his grace declare
and join to sound his praise abroad.
