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.

Representative Text

1 After the shadows have passed away,
From my life forever,
When I have entered the land of day,
Just beyond the river;
Then with what joy my heart will thrill,
Eager His face to see;
Glory and peace my soul will fill,
Glory enough for me.

That will be glory enough for me,
Glory, glory,
Seeing the Savior who made me free,
Glory, glory;
Close by His precious side to stay
All through eternity,
That will be glory bright as day,
Glory enough for me.

2 Resting at last on that golden shore,
Free from sin and sadness,
Weakness of earth will be mine no more,
Serving Him with gladness;
If I may gain His blessed smile,
Rich my reward will be,
That will be glory all the while,
Glory enough for me. [Refrain]

3 With my beloved ones gone before,
What a glorious meeting;
Safe in His presence to part no more,
Heaven’s joy completing;
Even while here on earth I wait,
Strengthened my soul will be,
As I behold that glory great,
Glory enough for me. [Refrain]
