Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

So if you benefit from, 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 sending a check to at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 , or you can click the Donate button below.

On behalf of the entire team,
Harry Plantinga

725. Thanks to God for My Redeemer

1 Thanks to God for my Redeemer,
thanks for all thou dost provide!
Thanks for times now but a memory,
thanks for Jesus by my side!
Thanks for pleasant, balmy springtime,
thanks for dark and dreary fall!
Thanks for tears by now forgotten,
thanks for peace within my soul!

2 Thanks for prayers that thou hast answered,
thanks for what thou dost deny!
Thanks for storms that I have weathered,
thanks for all thou dost supply!
Thanks for pain and thanks for pleasure,
thanks for comfort in despair!
Thanks for grace that none can measure,
thanks for love beyond compare!

3 Thanks for roses by the wayside,
thanks for thorns their stems contain!
Thanks for home and thanks for fireside,
thanks for hope, that sweet refrain!
Thanks for joy and thanks for sorrow,
thanks for heavenly peace with thee!
Thanks for hope in the tomorrow,
thanks through all eternity.
