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.

1 Beloved, "It is well!"
God’s ways are always right,
And perfect love is o’er them all
Tho’ far above our sight.

2 Beloved, "It is well!"
Tho’ deep and sore the smart,
The hand that wounds knows how to bind
And heal the broken heart.

3 Beloved, "It is well!"
Tho’ sorrow clouds our way,
’Twill only make the joy more dear
That ushers in the day.

4 Beloved, "It is well!"
The path that Jesus trod,
Tho’ rough and strait and dark it be,
Leads home to heav’n and God.

Amen.
