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 Dear Saviour, we our love would show,
That all the world might see,
The joy, the rest, the peace they know,
Who love and worship Thee.

America, America!
Thro’out, from sea to sea.
We want America for Christ,
America, the free.

2 Help us, the gospel news to tell,
Till not our hearts alone;
But all who come with us to dwell,
Thy sov’reign right shall own. [Refrain]

3 O send us forth as flaming brands,
Whose sacred beams shall shine;
Till those in all our Island lands,
Behold the light divine. [Refrain]

4 Thy wondrous grace on us bestow,
And fill each heart and mind,
That we with zeal may forward go,
To help and bless mankind. [Refrain]
