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

Representative Text

1 Awake! awake! put on thy strength,
Church of the living God,
Shine forth! shine forth! thy light is come,
Its beam diffuse abroad.
To nations that in darkness wait,
Send forth thy heralds bold,
‘Til ‘round the earth from pole to pole,
The tidings shall be told,
‘Til ‘round the earth from pole to pole,
The tidings shall be told.

2 They plead send help! our Country’s sons
From snow-clad mount to sea;
Send forth! send forth the Bread of Life
O hear your brothers’ plea;
And Asia’s millions join the cry,
With Afric’s starving throng,
While distant islands of the sea,
The plaintive strain prolong.
While distant islands of the sea,
The plaintive strain prolong.

3 They come! they come! the ransomed ones,
Where’er on earth their homes,
Lift up! lift up thine eyes and see,
At last thy triumph comes.
O glorious hour! the voice of heav’n
Proclaims from shore to shore,
The kingdoms of this world are Christ’s
He reigns for evermore.
The kingdoms of this world are Christ’s
He reigns for evermore.
