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,
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Der heilge Geist hernieder kam,
der Apostel Herzen einnahm,
erfüllte sie mit seiner Gnad
und schenkt ihn'n vieler Sprachen Gab.

2 Er sandt sie aus mit gutem Rath,
zu pred'gen Gottes Wunderthat,
in Christ zu lehren Gottes Huld,
Vergebung aller Sünd und Schuld.

3 Ehr sei Gott in dem höchsten Thron,
dazu Christo sein'm eingen Sohn,
der theil uns mit sein'n heilgen Geist,
der uns regier zu aller Zeit.
