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 Fast breaks the morn, all glorious appearing,
Illumes the sky with brightening golden light;
Faint flashes glow, His coming ever nearing,
Lo! on the sky the morn dispels the night.

Soldiers of Christ! Soldiers of light!
Watch for His coming across the golden height;
Soldiers of Christ! Soldiers of light!
Watch for His coming across the golden height.

2 Soon shall the trumpet’s golden, awful sounding,
Wake sleepers all to meet the coming Host;
Hark! even now the hills are all resounding
With joyful sounds to those who love Him most. [Refrain]

3 Then, faithful hearts, watch on, nor ever sleeping,
Soon shall He come to greet His waiting bride;
O faithful souls! your loving watches keeping,
Lamps trimmed and burning, watch whate’er betide! [Refrain]
