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,

1 From our belovèd nation,
To heathen climes afar,
The blessings of salvation,
The light of Bethlehem’s star,
Has shed its ray of gladness,
Where sin’s dark tide doth roll,
And from the chains of sadness
Has raised the captive soul.

2 We’ve prayed for olive China,
And for the dark Karen,
And wept for fettered Burma
With all its holy men.
And asked the God of Heaven,
That to His blessèd Son
The kingdoms might be given—
His will on earth be done.

3 Then let our prayers and offerings
O Lord, accepted be,
And those who still are suffering
Thy love and glory see.
From wigwam, hut and cabin,
May holy incense rise,
Till Zion wafts the chorus,
Salvation, through the skies.
