Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.
Harry Plantinga

Always Be Kind to Mother
Awake, Arise Ye Sons of Men
Bells of Heaven Are Ringing, The
Brother, the Savior Invites You
Come and Join Our Happy Band
Come, Weary Soul, by Sin Oppressed
Easter Lilies Whisper Sweet, The
Every Flower Has a Message Sweet
Hail, Hail the King Who Came Down
Hail the King
Hark, the Glad Bells
Have You Looked in the Highways and Hedges?
I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say
If There’s Sunlight in Your Soul
I’m Happy in the Savior’s Love
Is Your Soul by Sin Oppressed?
Leave Them Not, O Gentle Savior
Lift Up Your Voice and Let Us Sing
Lighten Another’s Care
Listen to the Little Birds
O Easter Bells, the Day Is Here
O Merry Bells of Christmastide
Repeat the Sweet Story of Jesus
Sin Clouds May Gather Each Day
Sing a Song of Greeting to This Day So Fair
Sing of Jesus and His Love
Tell Again the Sweet Old Story
We Are Messengers of Light
We Are Singing of the Summertime
What Can Little Children Do?
When Earthly Scenes Have All Passed
Who Will Labor for the Master?
