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,

From the harvest field there's a blessed yield

Representative Text

From the harvest field there’s a blessed yield,
Of a rich and ripe display;
For the Master’s hand over all the land,
Gives a hundred-fold today.

Then we’ll gather, gather,
Then we’ll gather from the valley and the plain,
Then we’ll gather, gather,
With our hearts full of gladness we will gather golden grain.

Ev’ry want supplied, ev’ry good applied,
Naught but gratitude we bring;
With a grateful heart each will bear a part,
In a tribute to our King.

With our songs of joy in His glad employ,
We will shout God’s praise amain;
With the reaper’s song we will join the throng,
That has gathered golden grain.

After toil is done, and the vict’ry’s won,
In the Canaan of our Lord,
Where the skies are bright in the holy light,
We shall have our rich reward.
