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

Ever to the right!
Give a ready hand and true
To the work you have to do.
Ever to the right,
Ever to the right.

Ever (to the right) boys,
Ever (to the right) boys,
Ever to the right, boys,
Ever to the right.

Ever to the right!
Never let your parents say,
Why my wishes disobey?
Ever to the right,
Ever to the right. [Refrain]

No known duty try to shun,
Faithful be to every one—

Speak the truth, the right pursue,
Honest be in all you do—
Ever to the right,
Ever to the right. [Refrain]

Ever to the right!
Time is gold; do what you can,
Make your mark and be a man—
Ever to the right,
Ever to the right. [Refrain]

Ever to the right!
Seek the Savior in your youth,
He’s the Life, the Way, the Truth—
Ever to the right,
Ever to the right. [Refrain]
