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,
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. Hide not Thy face, O Lord of Grace;
Thou who hast tasted woe;
Thro’ error’s night lend Thou Thy light
To guide me as I go!
Guide me, guide me, in this world of woe;
Thro’ error’s night lend Thou Thy light
To guide me as I go!

2. On Calv’ry’s tree a thief to Thee
Turned his repentant eyes,
And for the gloom of death’s dark doom
Thou gavest Paradise!
Guide me, guide me, guard me with Thine eyes,
And for the gloom of death’s dark doom
Thou gavest Paradise!

3. E’en so thro’ tears of burdened years
Earth’s children cry to Thee,
Whose blood was spilt that human guilt
Be pardoned, full and free!
Guide me, guide me, hear my cry to Thee,
Whose blood was spilt that human guilt
Be pardoned, full and free!

4. Contrite they plead their every need,
Thy grace will e’en fulfill,
To life’s last breath, thro’ gloom of death,
Guide Thou the wayward still!
Guide me, guide me, that I do Thy will,
To life’s last breath, thro’ gloom of death,
Guide Thou the wayward still!
