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.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Come, burdened souls, with all your guilt,
And all your weight of woe,
There’s mercy at a throne of grace;
Keep praying as you go.

Keep praying, ever praying,
Thro’ all your journey below;
To Jesus, to Jesus,
Keep praying as you go.

2 Behold the precious Lamb who died
For man, his love to show;
And while you seek the blood-stained cross,
Keep praying as you go. [Refrain]

3 Now, soldiers, gird your armor on,
And boldly meet the foe;
Let faith direct, and hope inspire;
Keep praying as you go. [Refrain]

4 Ye pilgrims on the heavn’ly way,
Thro’ trials here below,
O, never doubt a Saviour’s love;
Keep praying as you go. [Refrain]
