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

136. This Still Room

"Where, in my name, meet two or three,"
Our Lord hath said, "I there will be!"
And so I find it well to come
for deeper rest to this still room,

For here the habit of the soul
Feels less the outer world's control;
The strength of mutual purpose pleads
more earnestly our common needs;

And from the silence multiplied
By these still forms on either side,
The world that time and sense have known
Falls off and leaves us God alone.
