Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1
Have we any gift worth giving to the Giver of all
things?
What would please the ever-living, one true God
from whom life springs?
Not dead gold or merchandise, but a living sacrifice:
worship both profound and freeing, serving God

2
Christ by costly incarnation dwelt in human time
and place
to reveal to all creation God’s redeeming love and
grace;
so are we in flesh and bone given means of making
known
through the web of daily living God’s own pattern of
self-giving.

3
Let us shun the selfish merit worldly wisdom has
defined,
but renewed by God’s own Spirit be transformed in
heart and mind;
by past mercies taught and led, let us seek the path
ahead,
trusting that, like those before us, God will guide us
and restore us.
