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,

1 Heaven is not far away,
When Jesus is near;
Give your heart to him today,
When Jesus is near.
Place your trust in this dear Friend,
He will keep you to the end;
Heaven is not far away,
When Jesus is near.

2 Will you not repent, believe,
When Jesus is near?
Peace and pardon now receive,
When Jesus is near.
He will not your pray'r refuse,
Come and now the Saviour choose;
Heaven is not far away,
When Jesus is near.

3 Are you coming home to-day?
When Jesus is near?
Do not longer stay away,
When Jesus is near.
Cast your burdens on the Lord,
He has promised in his word
Heaven is not far away,
When Jesus is near.
