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,

Representative Text

1 Beautiful Christmas, welcome thy coming,
Day filled with pleasure and cheer,
Jewel the fairest, gem of the rarest
Crowning the golden year.

Refrain:
Welcome the day to our hearts ever dear,
Day of rejoicing now is here,
Hail, happy morning, welcome thy dawning,
Jesus is born the Saviour in Bethlehem.

2 Beautiful Christmas, bright day of gladness,
Gladly thy praises we sing;
Hail happy morning, welcome thy dawning,
Peace and good will to bring. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful Christmas, time of rejoicing,
Day when our hearts are aglow;
Richest of treasure, giv’n without measure,
Freely dost thou bestow. [Refrain]
