We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

How good and sweet, O see

Representative Text

1 Howgood and sweet, O see,
For brethren 'tis to dwell
As one in unity!
2 It's like choice oyl that fell
The head upon
That down did flow the beard unto
Beard of Aaron:

That further downward went,
His garments skirts upon.
3 Like Hermon's dews descent
Sion's mountains upon;
For there to stay
The Lord his bliss commanded is,
Ev'n life for aye.
