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 Around the throne, a glorious band,
The saints in countless numbers stand,
Of ev'ry tongue, redeemed to God,
Arrayed in garments washed in blood.

2 Through tribulation great they came;
They bore the cross, despised the shame;
From all their labors now they rest
In God's eternal glory blest.

3 They see their Savior face to face
And sing the triumphs of his grace;
Each day and night they sing his praise,
To him the loud thanksgiving raise:

4 "Worthy the Lamb, for sinners slain,
Through endless years to live and reign;
You have redeemed us by your blood
And made us kings and priests to God."

5 O may we tread the sacred road
That saints and holy martyrs trod;
Wage to the end the glorious strife
And win, like them, a crown of life.
