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 Eia, hvor vel
Du veed min Tarv og Trang
Til Liv og Sjæl,
Du min Immanuel!
Hold min Fod udi din Gang!
Thi naar jeg ret søger dig Hjertelig,
Da faar jeg
Ro og Mag,
Om jeg er syg og svag;
Fattes mig og dagligt Brød,
Det har dog slet ingen Nød,
Der er nok i Jesu Skjød.

2 Vær frisk og glad,
Min trangnedtrykte Aand!
Af liden Mad
Fem tusind Mænd i Rad
Mættes ved min Jesu Haand.
Tænk, at din Del er i glemt,
Og bortgjemt,
Du faar til Nøisomhed,
Hvad Gud dig gavnligt veed;
Kan du Herre-Bord ei naa
Tak, at du paa
Græs og Straa
Kan Guds Kurv og Levning faa.
