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.

Notes

Hail, sacred truth! whose piercing ray. [Missions]. This hymn in the American Methodist Episcopal Hymns 1849, 1879, and others, is given in Mason and Greene's Church Psalmody , 1831, as from the Evangelical Magazine. It is essentially different from the hymn "Hail, sacred truth, thou source of peace," in the Gospel Magazine, 1778, p. 55, and there signed "John Buttress."
