Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Frederick Arthur Graves, Orphaned at age 9, Graves was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was 14.

He studied the Bible and music in Chicago, Illinois, and Northfield, Massachusetts. Upon return to Minneapolis and hearing evangelist John Alexander Dowie, Graves experienced permanent healing, which provided a backdrop for his Gospel songs. Later, he moved to Zion City, Illinois, where he lived the rest of his life. All of his children attended the Central Bible Institute in Springfield, Missouri. Graves himself was ordained an Assemblies of God minister in 1918. His works include:
