Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Father, now our off’ring take,
Given for the Saviour’s sake;
Though but small our gift may be
Thou canst bless it, Lord, for Thee.

Bless the gift we bring today,
Bless our off’ring, Lord, we pray;
Take our sin and guilt away,
Make us wholly Thine.

2 Grant that we our part may do,
Showing that our hearts are true,
Serving Thee, our Saviour King,
In the off’ring that we bring. [Refrain]

3 Let us not forget to pray
In Thy holy name today;
Oh accept the gift we bring,
Own and bless us while we sing. [Refrain]
