Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 A brighter dawn is breaking,
and earth with praise is waking;
for thou, O King most highest,
the power of death defiest;

2 And thou hast come victorious,
with risen body glorious,
who now for ever livest,
and life abundant givest.

3 O free the world from blindness,
and fill the world with kindness,
give sinners resurrection,
bring striving to perfection.

4 In sickness give us healing,
in doubt thy clear revealing,
that praise to thee be given
in earth as in thy heaven.
