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,
Harry Plantinga

1 Glory to God for the joy to meet,
Here at the hour of prayer;
Welcome the bliss of communion sweet,
Here at the hour of prayer.

Chorus:
Nearer the gate to the souls bright home,
Nearer the vales where the faithful roam,
Nearer to God and the Lamb we come,
Here at the hour of prayer.

2 Far from the world we may turn away,
Here at the hour of prayer;
Gladly we rest from the toils of day,
Here at the hour of prayer. [Chorus]

3 Rich are the blessings that all may seek,
Here at the hour of prayer;
Grace for the weary, the faint, the weak,
Here at the hour of prayer. [Chorus]

4 O what a holy and clam repose,
Here at the hour of prayer;
Love in its fullness the heart o'erflows,
Here at the hour of prayer. [Chorus]
