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

1 Ah! this heart shall cease its longing,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Where no anxious cares are thronging,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Now a heavy burden presses,
And I walk thro’ thorny places,
Till my weary wand’ring ceases,
Safe at home! safe at home!

2 There I’ll see no tempest raging,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Sin no warfare wild is waging,
Safe at home! safe at home!
When shall come the blissful waking,
Where no painful head is aching,
Where no throbbing heart is breaking,
Safe at home! safe at home!

3 There are friends who with me parted,
Safe at home! safe at home!
No more wand’ring broken hearted,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Undisturb’d while storms are sweeping,
Calmly now the loved are sleeping,
Ever in their Father’s keeping,
Safe at home! safe at home!

4 Dear ones gone before will meet me,
Safe at home! safe at home!
At the pearly gate will greet me,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Saviour, dearest Saviour, hear me,
I am weary, be Thou near me,
Oh, sustain me till Thou cheer me,
Safe at home! safe at home!
