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

Representative Text

1 Fear not the gloom of the midnight,
Dread not the storm of the sea;
'Tis I who am coming to save thee,
'Tis I!art thou trusting in me?

Trusting in thee, yes, trusting in thee,
I'll doubt thee no more, my Redeemer;
Yes, trusting in thee, yes, trusting in thee,
I'll ever be trusting in thee.

2 Fear not the gloom of the furnace,
The Master is speaking to thee;
'Tis I who am cooling the foot-steps,
'Tis I!art thou trusting in me? [Refrain]

3 Heed not the wrath of the tempter,
My presence thy shelter shall be;
'Tis I who am keeping thy spirit,
'Tis I!art thou trusting in me? [Refrain]

4 Fear not the chill of the valley,
For death but a shadow shall be;
My rod and my staff shall support thee,
'Tis I!keep on trusting in me. [Refrain]
