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 of our salvation, unto Thee we pray;
Hear our supplication, be our strength and stay;
Wretched and unworthy, poor, and sick, and blind,
Prostrate we adore Thee, call Thy grace to mind.

2 He that dwelleth near Thee safely shall abide;
Ever love and fear Thee, in Thy strength confide:
Sure is Thy protection, safe is Thy defense,
While in deep affliction, woe or pestilence.

3 God of our salvation, Savior, Prince of peace,
Boundless Thy compassion, infinite Thy grace:
While with love unceasing, humbly we adore,
Grant us Thy rich blessing, and we ask no more.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
