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 Higher, higher would I soar,
Rise where sin disturbs no more;
Nearer, nearer, Lord, to Thee,
Cleansed from all impurity.

Refrain:
Oh, my Savior, brother, friend,
Let the cleansing showers descend,
Let me all Thy fullness know,
Let the healing waters flow.

2 Upward, onward, be my flight,
Till the world is lost to sight;
Heav’nward all my thoughts ascend,
Till my pilgrimage shall end. [Refrain]

3 Onward, onward, be my cry,
From earth’s cares I fain would fly;
Pressing t’ward the heav’nly goal,
To the haven of my soul. [Refrain]

4 Forward, forward, I will go,
Gladly leaving all below,
In the narrow, trustful way,
Till I gain the realms of day. [Refrain]
