We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Be perfect; holiness pursue;
In love be sure to dwell;
And God through Christ will comfort you;
So, brethren, all farewell,
So, brethren, all farewell.

2 Be of one mind; give God your hearts,
And of his mercies tell,
Which he through grace to you imparts;
So, brethren, all farewell.

3 Now live in peace and holy fear;
In love strive to excel;
For Christ, our King, will soon appear;
So, brethren, all farewell.
