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.

Eterne ĉe l' Sinjoro

Representative Text

1. "Eterne ĉe l' Sinjor'!"
Amen'! ĉar tiu vort'
promeson donas al la kor'
pri vivo post la mort'.
Dum tera pilgrimad'
fremdule vagas mi:
sed proksimiĝas ĉiam pli
al hejmo kaj al Di'.

2. Ho hejmo de l' anim'!
Oftege, en vizi',
la pordojn viajn en proksim'
mi vidas antaŭ mi.
Al tiu hel-vidaĵ'
sopiras mia kor':
Jerusalemo, heredaĵ'
de lumo kaj de glor'.

3. De temp' al tempo ĝin
kaŝadas nubegar',
kaj, kiel la kolombojn, min
timigas venta mar'.
Sed pasas la malhel';
alvenas bel-veter';
profetas arko sur ĉiel'
pri paco kaj esper'.

4. Kaj kiam venos fin',
en tago kiu ajn,
mortante, morton venkos mi,
per nova vivo-gajn'.
En releviĝa hor'
eksonos venko-kri':
Denove, "Ĉiam ĉe l' Sinjor'!"
"Amen'!" respondos mi.
