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. Along the way of life are many foes
That daily war against my soul;
But constant victory
My Savior gives to me
As I press on to the goal.

Refrain:
On the winning side, I’m on the winning side,
I’m on the winning side with Jesus;
Though hot may be the fray,
My soul can boldly say,
I’m on the winning side with Jesus.

2. The battle may be long and hard to win,
And Satan’s hosts may press me sore;
But though I may be tried,
I’m on the winning side,
I shall triumph evermore.

3. A multitude of warriors of the cross
In serried ranks do bravely fight;
They never shall retreat,
Nor ever know defeat,
They are winning for the right.

4. With courage in my soul I’ll do my part,
For Jesus I will loyal stand;
So on the winning side
Triumphant I abide
With the faithful, holy band.
