We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 God gives us the flow’rs, the radiant flow’rs;
What joy to our lives they bring!
With gladness they crown our brightest hours,
Inspiring our hearts to sing.

God gives us the flow’rs, the beautiful flow’rs,
His wonderful love to show;
And we may be flow’rs, His own bright flow’rs,
If true to His word we grow.

2 God gives us the flow’rs, the cheerful flow’rs:
Their lesson we all may read:
To smile thro’ the show’rs, life’s stormy show’rs,
And praise Him in word and deed. [Refrain]

3 God gives us the flow’rs, the pure, white flow’rs,
He careth for me and you;
His joy and His peace may both be ours!
If we are His children true. [Refrain]
