Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

1. Fountain of being, source of good!
At whose almighty breath
The creature proves our bane or food
Dispensing life or death:

2. Thee we address with humble fear;
Vouchsafe Thy gifts to crown;
Father of all, Thy children hear,
And send a blessing down.

3. O, may our souls for ever pine
Thy grace to taste and see;
Athirst for righteousness divine,
And hungry after Thee!

4. For this we lift our longing eyes
We wait the gracious word:
Speak, and our hearts from earth shall rise,
And feed upon the Lord.
