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,

Representative Text

1 Along the silent path
By viewless spirits trod,
Another little traveler
Hath gone to be with God.

Refrain:
Bid us, O Lord, to go,
Or bid us here to stay;
We’ll walk with Thee while here below,
Or up the silent way.

2 Gone up from human love
To higher love and care;
From pain below to peace above,
In mansions, oh, so fair! [Refrain]

3 Attune our hearts, O Lord,
Though they with sorrow swell,
To say this meek, submissive word—
“Thou doest all things well.” [Refrain]
