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.

I 'm on my way.

Hail, O hail! I 'm on my way. [Chorus]

Hail, O hail! I 'm on my way. [Chorus]

Hail, O hail! I 'm on my way. [Chorus]

Hail, O hail! I 'm on my way. [Chorus]

Hail, O hail! I 'm on my way. [Chorus]

Hail, O hail! I 'm on my way. [Chorus]
