We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

We, thy people, praise thee, praise thee, God of every nation!
We, thy people, praise thee, praise thee, Lord of Hosts eternal!

1 Days of wonder, days of beauty, days of rapture filled with light
tell thy goodness, tell thy mercies, tell thy glorious might.
We, thy people, praise thee, praise thee, praise thee evermore!

2 For thy blessings, for thy bounty, joyful songs to thee we sing,
songs of glory, songs of triumph to our God and King.
We, thy people, praise thee, praise thee, praise thee evermore!
