Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

1 How beautiful the sight of brethren who agree
in friendship to unite, and bonds of charity;
'tis like the precious ointment, shed
o'er all his robes, from Aaron's head.

2 'Tis like the dew that fills the cups of Hermon's flow'rs;
or Zion's fruitful hill, bright with the drops of show'rs.
when mingling odors breathe around,
and glory rests on all the ground.

3 For there the Lord commands blessings, a boundless store,
from his unsparing hands, yea, life for evermore;
thrice happy they who meet above
to spend eternity in love!
