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.

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,
Harry Plantinga

1 Here in the house of the Lord
I find the narrow way,
And here I find the blessed light
That shines for all, today;
Here I see his lifted cross,
To which in faith I cling,
And thus, believing in his name,
My heart will ever sing.

Refrain:
I was glad, I was glad,
I was glad when they said unto me,
Let us go, let us go,
Let us go into the house of the Lord.

2 Here in the house of the Lord
I find the hope divine,
And with my sins all blotted out,
I know this hope is mine;
Here I find this safe retreat,
The shelter of his wing,
And thus, rejoicing in his love,
My heart will ever sing. [Refrain]

3 Here in the house of the Lord
I’m always glad to be,
For here I find the sinner’s friend,
Who died to ransom me;
Here I gave my earthly life
To serve the Lord and King,
And thus, with faith to guide me on,
My heart will ever sing. [Refrain]
