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. Flash out the search light, dark is the way,
Some weary wand’rer is going astray,
Many temptations lurk now at his side,
Many the perils that in his path hide.

Refrain
Flash out the search light, brighten the way,
Follow the souls that in darkened paths stray,
Search in the highways, search in the byways,
Tell them that Jesus bids them come home.

2. Flash out the search light, bright let it shine,
Bearing the message of mercy divine,
Christ the Redeemer who seeketh for thee,
Offers a pardon so full and so free. [Refrain]

3. Light up the darkness, scatter the night,
There is a brother who longs for the light,
Now he is faltering, do not delay,
Flash out the search light and brighten the way. [Refrain]
