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 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 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 Firm on the Rock I stand,
Jesus, my Lord;
Held by Thy mighty hand,
Jesus, my Lord;
Filled with Thy love divine,
O what a joy is mine;
I am a child of Thine;
Jesus, my Lord.

Refrain:
Jesus, my Lord,
Jesus, my Lord;
I am a child of Thine,
Jesus, my Lord.

2 Thou art my constant Guest,
Jesus, my Lord;
Safe in Thy fold I rest,
Jesus, my Lord;
What tho' a cross I bear?
Bright is the pearl I wear,
Life in Thy life I share,
Jesus, my Lord. [Refrain]

3 Soon o'er the swelling tide,
Jesus, my Lord,
Home on the other side,
Jesus, my Lord,
I shall awake with Thee,
O what a joy is mine;
I am a child of Thine;
Jesus, my Lord. [Refrain]
