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,

1. Christ, that ever reigneth,
Christ, that here remaineth,
Christ, within us dwelling,
Christ in praise excelling,
Him we proclaim, His glorious name;
To our creator render
Homage all due; lowly and true
Homage to Him we tender.

2. Heaven’s high host rejoices,
lifting up all voices,
Jubilant with gladness—
yet the earth with sadness
Dreading her fate God doth await
Who judgment strict revealeth;
Merciful power, save in that hour
Those whom Thy passion healeth!

3. Raise us, cleansed, to regions
where the angel legions
Round Thee aye are soaring,
with Thy saints adoring;
Grant us Thy peace, bid dangers cease,
And Thou, Thy mercy sending,
Christ, give us rest, where, with the blest,
Thy reign is never ending.
