We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And 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 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Sing to the Lord of Harvest

Author: John Samuel Bewley Monsell Hymnal: The Hymnal and Order of Service #571 (1926) Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Topics: A Day of Thanksgiving or a Harvest Festival Lyrics: 1 Sing to the Lord of harvest, Sing songs of love and praise; With joyful hearts and voices Your alleluias raise: By Him the rolling seasons In fruitful order move; Sing to the Lord of harvest A song of happy love. 2 By Him the clouds drop fatness, The deserts bloom and spring, The hills leap up in gladness, The valleys laugh and sing: He filleth with His fulness All things with large increase, He crowns the year with goodness, With plenty, and with peace. 3 Heap on His sacred altar The gifts His goodness gave, The golden sheaves of harvest, The souls He died to save: Your hearts lay down before Him, When at His feet ye fall, And with your lives adore Him, Who gave His life for all. Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: GREENLAND

Is He not Himself to be All our store eternally? 3 What our Father does is well; Though He sadden hill and dell, Upward yet our praises rise For the strength His Word supplies. He has called us sons of God; Can we murmur at His rod? 4 What our Father does is well; May the thought within us dwell.

My Soul, Repeat His Praise

Author: Isaac Watts Hymnal: The Hymnal and Order of Service #293 (1926) Meter: 6.6.8.6 Topics: A Day of Thanksgiving or a Harvest Festival Lyrics: 1 My soul, repeat His praise, Whose mercies are so great, Whose anger is so slow to rise, So ready to abate. 2 God will not always chide; And, when His wrath is felt, His strokes are few than our crimes, And lighter than our guilt. 3 High as the heavens are raised Above the ground we tread, So far the riches of His grace Our highest thoughts exceed. 4 His power subdues our sins; And His forgiving love, Far as the east is from the west, Doth all our guilt remove. 5 Our days are as the grass, Or like the morning flower; If one sharp blast sweep o'er the field, It withers in an hour. 6 But Thy compassions, Lord, To endless years endure, And children's children ever find Thy words of promise sure. Amen. Scripture: Psalm 103 Languages: English Tune Title: BARNBY'S HYMNARY, TUNE 525

Lord, with Glowing Heart I'd Praise Thee

Author: Francis Scott Key Hymnal: The Hymnal and Order of Service #296 (1926) Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Topics: A Day of Thanksgiving or a Harvest Festival Lyrics: 1 Lord, with glowing heart I’d praise Thee For the bliss Thy love bestows, For the pard'ning grace that saves me, And the peace that from it flows. Help, O God, my weak endeavor; This dull soul to rapture raise: Thou must light the flame, or never Can my love be warmed to praise. 2 Praise, my soul, the God that sought thee, Wretched wanderer, far astray; Found thee lost, and kindly brought thee From the paths of death away. Praise, with love’s devoutest feeling, Him who saw thy guilt-born fear, And, the light of hope revealing, Bade the bloodstained Cross appear. 3 Lord, this bosom’s ardent feeling Vainly would my lips express; Low before Thy footstool kneeling, Deign Thy suppliant’s prayer to bless. Let Thy grace, my soul’s chief treasure, Love’s pure flame within me raise: And, since words can never measure, Let my life show forth Thy praise. Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: AUTUMN
