We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below.

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."
