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

1 We shall overcome, we shall overcome,
we shall overcome someday.
Oh, deep in our hearts we do believe
we shall overcome someday.

2 We’ll walk hand in hand, we’ll walk hand in hand,
we’ll walk hand in hand someday.
Oh, deep in our hearts we do believe
we'll walk hand in hand someday.

3 We shall all have peace, we shall all have peace,
we shall all have peace someday.
Oh, deep in our hearts we do believe
we shall all have peace someday.

4 We shall see the Lord, we shall see the Lord,
we shall see the Lord someday.
Oh, deep in our hearts we do believe
we shall see the Lord someday.

5 We are not afraid, we are not afraid,
we are not afraid today.
Oh, deep in our hearts we do believe
we are not afraid today.

6 God is on our side, God is on our side,
God is on our side today.
Oh, deep in our hearts we do believe
God is on our side today.
