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

16. Time Now to Gather

Time now to gather,
Time now to feel
Christ's holy presence
gracing this meal.
Grain from the harvest
fruit of the vine;
simple the supper,
sacred the sign.

Time to remember
Christ who was sent.
Time to say thank you
for all he meant.
Come to this table.
Come, without fear.
God will forgive you,
welcome you here.

All who are hungry,
come, and be fed.
Serve one another
this cup and bread.
All who are troubled,
hurting, or sad,
come, and find healing.
Come, and be glad!
