Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

53. God of Love, We Sing Your Glory

God of love, we sing your glory and we offer you our praise,
As we celebrate the story of our church’s founding days.
‘Mid the farms and homes around here, faithful Christians heard your call:
”This is truly mission ground here; be my light that shines to all.”

From the start, we were a mission, sent to share Christ’s love and grace.
Through the years, we’ve kept that vision as we’ve served you in this place.
As we’ve sought to be a blessing to the lonely, lost and poor,
What we’ve found has been surprising: you have blessed us even more.

When we gather here to worship, still your blessings overflow.
Education, faith and friendship are your gifts through which we grow.
Called to serve, we seek a balance: honor old ways, try what’s new!
Spirit-filled, we share our talents and are blessed by serving you.

God, we pray about the future, and we wonder what will be;
Yet we know it’s an adventure joining hands in ministry.
For in church, each generation builds by faith and not by sight—
And each one, a new creation, finds new ways to spread your light.
