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. Church of God, awaken; heed the Lord’s command,
Tell the blessèd story of the cross.
Fields are white for harvesting on every hand,
Tell the blessèd story of the cross.

Refrain
Tell the blessèd story of the cross of Jesus,
Tell the blessèd story of the hallowed cross.
Until every nation learns of full salvation,
Tell the blessèd story of the cross.

2. Has not He commissioned you the news to bear?
Tell the blessèd story of the cross.
Go ye into all the world, and everywhere
Tell the blessèd story of the cross. [Refrain]

3. Stand no longer idle while the moments fly.
Tell the blessèd story of the cross.
Multitudes in heathen darkness live and die.
Tell the blessèd story of the cross. [Refrain]

4. Publish unto all the world redeeming grace.
Tell the blessèd story of the cross.
Until in the home of rest you find your place.
Tell the blessèd story of the cross. [Refrain]
