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,
Harry Plantinga

Our God, Our Help in Ages Past (Psalm 90)

Author: Isaac Watts Hymnal: Glory to God #687 (2013) Meter: Topics: Aging First Line: Our God, our help in ages past Lyrics: 1 Our God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, our shelter from the stormy blast, and our eternal home: 2 Beneath the shadow of thy throne thy saints have dwelt secure; sufficient is thine arm alone, and our defense is sure. 3 Before the hills in order stood, or earth received its frame, from everlasting thou art God, to endless years the same. 4 A thousand ages in thy sight are like an evening gone, short as the watch that ends the night before the rising sun. 5 Time, like an ever rolling stream, bears all our years away; they fly forgotten, as a dream dies at the opening day. 6 Our God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, be thou our guard while life shall last, and our eternal home.

Three Things I Promise (Ce que je promets)

Author: Brian Wren; David Fines Hymnal: More Voices #176 (2007) Meter: Topics: Aging First Line: Three things I promise, Holy God (Ce que je promets, ô Dieu saint) Lyrics: ENGLISH: 1 Three things I promise, Holy God, in age and youth, in life and death: to bless your Name, and cling to Christ, and listen for the Spirit's breath. 2 Your love unfolded time and space, and life, and all that life became, and so, with thankful heart and voice, through good and ill, I bless your Name. 3 I follow, serve, and cling to Christ amid our culture's tides and trends, for here your Name is most revealed: Majestic Love, and Best of Friends. 4 Enlivened as the Spirit moves to cleanse, awaken, and renew, I pray that justice, peace, and truth, may seed and grow in all I do. 5 If I should live when vigour fades, and family and friends are gone, three acts of loving faith remain when days are slow, and work is done. 6 Revive and guide me, Living God, as day by day, until my death, I bless your Name, and cling to Christ, and listen for the Spirit's breath. FRENCH: 1 Ce que je promets, ô Dieu saint, c'est d'être á toi dès aujourd'hui, chanter pour toi chaque matin, d'être á l'écoute de l'Esprit. 2 Ton amour a créé le temps, créé l'univers et la vie; ainsi mon coeur reconnaissant, Dieu, te rend grâce et te bénit. 3 Je veux servir, suivre Jésus que ce soit loin ou bien ici; son nom nous offire le salut. Majesté, Amour, Tendre Ami. 4 Par ton Esprit-Saint, animé, pour guérir et renouveler, que paix, justice et vérité, germent de tout ce que je fais. 5 Quand j'aurai atteint les vieux jours, que seront partis mes amis, ce que j'ai promis dans l'amour sera comme un dernier merci. 6 Oui, gardemoi, ô Dieu vivant, en chaque matin de ma vie; que jusqu'au dernier, confiant, je chante et j'écoute l'Esprit.

As Children, We May Learn to Love

Author: Daniel Charles Damon Hymnal: New Hymns of Hope #15 Meter: Topics: Aging Lyrics: 1 As children, we may learn to love, to trust, and as we grow, to test and try the world around, enlarging what we know. 2 If songs and stories fill our hearts, a vital seed may grow to bear the fruit of faith and hope: the love our lives can show. 3 When change and sorrow come our way our faith is tried by fire, but from a tiny seed can grow the tallest redwood spire. 4 This faith, no longer like the old, is stronger for the years. Embracing life and death, it holds our laughter and our tears. 5 We learn to spend and to be spent, and living free from fear, we bear the healing fruit of faith, and show God's presence here. Scripture: Luke 2:41-52 Languages: English Tune Title: PINOLE VALLEY
