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.

Representative Text

1 Christian, wherefore yield to sadness?
Fix thy heart and hopes above;
Look to Jesus, and with gladness
Trust his gracious, pardoning love.
Trials here will sorely press thee,
Let thy trust on him be stayed:
He will cheer, and guide, and bless thee,
With his ever-present aid.

2 Think how kind, how condescending!
Jesus calls himself thy Friend,
From his throne in glory bending,
He will every prayer attend.
He will never, never leave thee,
Through thy pilgrim days below;
Then, at last, he will receive thee,
And a crown of life bestow.
