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,

Here within this house of prayer

Author: Timothy Dudley-Smith (born 1926) Hymnal: Hymns for Today's Church (2nd ed.) #563a (1987) Meter: 7.7.7.7.7.7 Topics: Christ the Friend of Sinners Lyrics: 1 Here within this house of prayer all our Father's love declare; love that gave us birth, and planned days and years beneath his hand: praise to God whose love and power bring us to this present hour! 2 Here, till earthly praises end, tell of Christ the sinner's friend; Christ whose blood for us was shed, Lamb of God and living bread, life divine and truth and way, light of everlasting day. 3 Here may all our faint desire feel the Spirit's wind and fire souls that sleep the sleep of death stir to life beneath his breath: may his power upon us poured send us out to serve the Lord! 4 Here may faith and love increase, flowing forth in joy and peace from the Father, Spirit, Son, undivided, Three-in-One: his the glory all our days in this house of prayer and praise!

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds

Author: J. Newton (1725-1807) Hymnal: Hymns for Today's Church (2nd ed.) #211a (1987) Topics: Christ the Friend of Sinners Lyrics: 1 How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believer's ear! it soothes our sorrows, heals our wounds, and drives away our fear. 2 It makes the wounded spirit whole, and calms the troubled breast; it satisfies the hungry soul, and gives the weary rest. 3 Dear name, the rock on which I build, my shield and hiding-place; my never-failing treasury, filled with boundless stores of grace! 4 Jesus, my shepherd, guardian, friend, my prophet, priest and king, my Lord, my life, my way, my end — accept the praise I bring. 5 Weak is the effort of my heart, and cold my warmest thought; but when I see you as you are, I'll praise you as I ought. 6 Till then I would your love proclaim with every fleeting breath; and may the music of your name refresh my soul in death.

We lift them to the Lord, and give to God our thanks with one accord; it is our joy and duty, all our days to lift our hearts in grateful thanks and praise. 2 Above the level of the former years, the mire of sin, the slough of guilty fears, the mist of doubt, the blight of love's decay — O Lord of light, lift all our hearts today! 3 Above the swamps of subterfuge and shame, the deeds, the thoughts, that honour may not name, the halting tongue that dares not tell the whole — O Lord of truth, lift every Christian soul! 4 Above the storms that darken human life — pride, jealousy and envy, rage and strife; where cold mistrust holds friend and friend apart — O Lord of love, lift every Christian heart! 5 Then, with the trumpet call as Christ appears, 'Lift up your hearts!' rings, pealing in our ears: still shall our hearts respond with full accord — 'We lift them up, we lift them to the Lord!'

What a friend we have in Jesus

Author: J. M. Scriven (1819-1886) Hymnal: Hymns for Today's Church (2nd ed.) #373a (1987) Meter: 8.7.8.7 D Topics: Christ the Friend of Sinners Lyrics: 1 What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear; what a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer! O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer. 2 Have we trials and temptations, is there trouble anywhere? We should never be discouraged: take it to the Lord in prayer. Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrows share? Jesus knows our every weakness — take it to the Lord in prayer. 3 Are we weak and heavy-laden, burdened with a load of care? Jesus is our mighty saviour: he will listen to our prayer. Do your friends despise, forsake you? take it to the Lord in prayer; in his arms he will enfold you and his love will shield you there. Tune Title: BLAENWERN
