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.

Representative Text

1 Der Vei, der ind til Jesus gaar,
Er salig at betræde;
Man der al Trøstens Kundskab faar,
Og Sjælen fuld af Glæde.
Hans Ord og store Gjerninger
De vise, han Messias er
I Adams Kjød og Klæde.

2 De blinde se, de Halte gaa,
Spedalske blive rene,
De Døve høre, Død' opstaa
Ved Jesu Ord alene;
Det liflig' Evangelium
Hos Fattige faar Sjæle-Rum,
Det Ingen kan formene.

3 O søde Jesus, hvo der kan
Forarge sig og støde
Paa dig i din Fornedrings Stand,
Hans Dom skal hannem møde.
Jeg favner dig med Hjertens Tro,
Mit Liv, min Lyst, mig Haab, min Ro,
Du al min Sorg skal døde!
