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. God, the blessed and only Ruler,
Rule my heart today.
You’re the King of kings forever;
O’er my life hold sway.

2. Lord of lords, be now my Master;
Gladly I’ll obey.
You’re immortal and eternal;
Hear my prayer today.

3. Lord, You live in light so brilliant,
None can see Your face.
Shine Your light within my heart now;
Cleanse me by Your grace.

4. Lord, to You be honor, glory,
Now and without end;
May Your mighty power control
My life each day.
