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 Be earnest, my brothers, in word and in deed,
Be active in reaping and sowing the seed;
And thus in the vineyard, with Jesus to lead,
Be always abounding in the work of the Lord.

Refrain:
Be always abounding in the work of the Lord,
Be always abounding in the work of the Lord;
Be earnest, be active, relying on his word,
Be always abounding in the work of the Lord.

2 Be ready, my brothers, his call to obey,
In seeking the erring and showing the way;
And thus as his servants, remember, we pray,
Be always abounding in the work of the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Be zealous, my brothers, the light to extend,
And unto all nations the gospel to send;
And thus, till the harvest in glory shall end,
Be always abounding in the work of the Lord. [Refrain]
