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 An awful day draws near;
A storm of wrath must fall:
O, how shall those I love appear
Before the Judge of all!

2 The path of death they choose;
And boldly walk therein;
My soul with deepest sorrow views
Their danger and their sin.

3 Careless they press the brink
Of infinite despair;
Can I endure to see them sink
In hopeless ruin there?

4 I pour unceasing tears;
By day and night I cry;
Almighty Father, hear my prayers,
Nor let these sinners die.
