We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 All the brewers tell us lager-beer's a food;
That for old and young 'tis very, very good.
Ha, ha, ha, ha ha, ha, ha, ha!
Pardon, if our laugh seems rude.

2 If 'tis really food, as by the brewers said,
Why do many "soaKers" have to beg for bread?
Ha, ha, ha, ha ha, ha, ha, ha!
Why should they be begging bread?

3 Hear the whiskey cohorts shout their battle-cry:
"Regulate the trade with license, low or high."
But we answer: "No, no, no, no!
We will vote it, vote it dry."

4 Ye who soak your skin with whiskey, beer and gin,
Shake now in your shoes, for we are bound to win.
Ha, ha, ha, ha ha, ha, ha, ha!
Now let ev'rybody grin!
