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.

We bless Thy tender care That led our wayward feet, Past every fatal snare, To streams and pastures sweet. 3 We bless Thy Son, who bore The cross, for sinners dying; Thy Spirit we adore, The precious blood applying. Let work and worship send their incense unto Thee, Till song and service blend, Beside the crystal sea. Tune Title: [To Thee, O God, we raise Our voice]
