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. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Representative Text

Climbin’ up d’mountain, children.
Didn’t come here for to stay.
If ah nevermore see you again,
gonna meet you at d’judgment day

1 Hebrew children in de fiery furnace.
And dey begin to pray,
And de good Lawd smote dat fiyah out.
Oh, wasn’t dat a mighty day!
Good Lawd, wasn’t dat a mighty day! (refrain)

2 Daniel went in de lion’s den,
And he begin to pray,
And de angel of de Lawd locked de lion’s jaw.
Oh, wasn’t dat a mighty day!
Good Lawd, wasn’t dat a mighty day! (refrain)
