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, 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 source of order, Maker wise!
Whose throne is high above the skies;
We praise thy name; thy laws ordain,
That order shall on earth obtain.

2 Let each inferior rank revere
All such as their superiors are;
And let superiors also do
What's right by each inferior too.

3 To thee may each united house,
At morn and night present its vows;
O may each family proclaim
The honours of thy glorious name.
