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

1. Be near us, Holy Trinity,
One Light, one only Deity!
All things are Thine, on Thee depend,
Who art Beginning without end.

2. The myriad armies of the sky
Praise, bless, adore Thy majesty:
Earth’s triple frame—land, air, and sea—
Upraise their canticle to Thee.

3. We, too, Thy suppliant servants all,
Before Thy feet adoring fall:
To Thee our vows and prayers we bring
With hymns that saints and angels sing.

4. One we believe Thee, Light divine,
And worship in a glorious Trine:
O First and Last, we humbly cry,
And all things having breath reply.

5. Praise to the Father, made of none,
Praise to the sole-begotten Son,
Praise to the Holy Spirit be—
Mysterious Godhead, One in Three!
