Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1. Firme kredas mi kaj vere
Dio estas Triunuo.
Kaj la Filo, eĉ surtere,
Enkarniĝis en Jesuo.

2. Fidas mi kun plenespero
Al la kruca sav-deklaro,
Mortu per la Di-mistero
Ĉiu peka penso, faro.

3. Venas lumo, vivo, forto
Nur per graco de l' Sinjoro.
Ĉiopova, Sankta Vorto,
Lin mi amas kun fervoro.

4. Ankaŭ, Sanktan Eklezion
Mi respektas, pro Jesuo.
Ŝi instruos, ĝis en Cion
Li mem estos mia ĝuo.

5. Ho adoru, terloĝanto,
Kun anĝeloj ĉe l' zenito
Nun al Dio, la Kreanto,
Patro, Filo, kaj Spirito.
