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

Are You Following Jesus

Representative Text

1 Are you following Jesus, your Master,
The Shepherd who cares for the sheep?
He is calling the lambs to his pasture,
His own he will tenderly keep.

Are you following Jesus?
He calls you today;
He will guide you and keep you,
If you will but walk in his way.

2 Are you following Jesus most truly,
Too earnest and loving to roam?
Do you look unto him in the darkness,
And trust him to lead you safe home? [Chorus]

3 Do you daily look up to your Leader?
His voice do you listen to hear?
When he calls you by name, only follow,
And you will have nothing to fear. [Chorus]
