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

1. Ho venu vi, Emanuel'!
Sav-donu nun al Izrael'
Ploranta sola en ekzil',
Ĝis venos vi, la Dia Fil'!
Ho ĝoj'! Ho ĝoj'! Emanuel'
Revenos al vi, Izrael'.

El ĉenoj liberigu nin,
Kaj savu el la nigra mort'!
Ne venku nin infera fort'!
Ho ĝoj'! Ho ĝoj'! Emanuel'

3. Ho venu vi, Matena Sun'!
Dispelu noktajn nubojn nun;
Lumante al mort-ombra voj',
Gajigu nin per sankta ĝoj'.
Ho ĝoj'! Ho ĝoj'! Emanuel'
Revenos al vi, Izrael'.

4. Ŝlosil' Davida, venu vi!
Malfermu hejmon antaŭ ni;
Enlasu nin al Dia glor';
Malbonon ĉian baru for.
Ho ĝoj'! Ho ĝoj'! Emanuel'
Revenos al vi, Izrael'.

5. Ho venu vi, la Leĝdonint',
El nubo de Sinaja pint'!
Jam nun al via Izrael'
Revenu vi, Emanuel'
Ho ĝoj'! Ho ĝoj'! Emanuel'
Revenos al vi, Izrael'.
