Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

1 Holy Father, send Thy blessing
On Thy children gathered here;
Let them all, Thy love confessing,
Be to Thee forever dear.

Send the blessing, send the blessing
On Thy children gathered here;
Send the blessing, send the blessing,
Grant us all Thy love and cheer.

2 Blessed Saviour, who in meekness
Didst vouchsafe a child to be,
Guide their steps and help their weakness,
Bless, and make them like to Thee. [Refrain]

3 Spread Thy wings of mercy o’er them,
Grant Thy Spirit from above;
Be their shield, and go before them,
Give them peace and joy and love. [Refrain]
