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 Great God, a blessing from your throne
Grant us who lay this corner-stone
To build a church in which your Word
Is purely taught, and gladly heard.

2 The work is yours, and not our own;
Oh, come, and make our presence known:
Our prayers accept, our off’rings bless,
Our labors crown with due success.

3 We are the people of your choice,
And while we in this grace rejoice,
Our prayer is this, our constant care,
That others too our bliss may share.

4 Lord, here erect a blessed home
Where Christ will ever bid us come,
From him receiving grace for grace
Till we behold you face to face.
