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. How often I wish that when Jesus was here—
When He mingled with children of men;
How gladly I’d gather with those who were near,
While His blessing He gave unto them.

Refrain
He blessed them then, He’ll bless me, too,
He’s living now in glory, and He’ll bless me, too.

2. But when I remember how homeless and sad
He wandered that weary land o’er,
It leads me to singing, rejoice and be glad,
He liveth above evermore. [Refrain]

3. I’ll try to be faithful and patient and true,
And lovingly seek Him in prayer;
He kindly will help me my duty to do,
Until His sweet home I shall share. [Refrain]
