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,

1. Get right with God, why will you die?
Oh, weary one, for mercy cry;
No longer walk the downward road;
Oh, come away, get right with God.

Refrain
Get right with God; get right with God;
Oh, come away, get right with God;
No longer walk the downward road;
Oh, come away, get right with God.

2. Get right with God—for you Christ died,
On Calvary’s cross was crucified;
His side was pierced, blood from it flowed;
Oh, come away, get right with God. [Refrain]

3. Get right with God, He loves you so;
No mother’s love could stoop so low;
On Christ He laid sin’s heavy load,
Oh, come away, get right with God. [Refrain]

4. Get right with God, your loved ones said
When lying on their dying bed;
But ah! you’ve wandered far abroad,
Oh, come away, get right with God. [Refrain]

5. Get right with God, confess your sin,
And let the dear Redeemer in;
He hath for you the winepress trod,
Oh, come away, get right with God. [Refrain]
