Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Awake, awake, with cheerful heart and voice,
To Zion’s God our sweetest anthem rise;
Awake, awake, let heav’n and earth rejoice,
And shout aloud in tuneful strain Jehovah’s praise,
And shout aloud in tuneful strain Jehovah’s praise.

He crowns the year with mercy,
He fills our cup with joy,
His love is everlasting,
Let praise our tongues employ;
His blessings fall around us
Like dew and summer showers,
He cheers the path before us,
And makes it bright with flowers,
He cheers the path before us,
And makes it bright with flowers.

He is watching kindly o’er us,
Bending low our song to hear,
And we know with ev’ry moment
Guardian angels hover near,
And we know with ev’ry moment
Guardian angels hover near.

Joyful, joyful, glorify his name,
Now in his temple grateful homage pay,
Hail him, hail him, join the loud acclaim,
Sing hallelujah, worship him today’
Shout, shout, come with one accord,
Sing hallelujah, praise ye the Lord,
Sing hallelujah, praise ye the Lord.
