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,
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I come, O blessed Lord, to Thee,
I come today;
I am no longer satisfied
To stay away.

2 I will not wait until my life
Like Thine shall grow:
I’ll come at once; I know I’ve sinn’d:
I’ll tell Thee so.

3 It is enough for me to know,
Thou wilt receive
And cleanse my heart from ev’ry sin
If I believe.

4 Help me that I forget myself
In loving Thee;
And let Thine image on my heart
Reflected be.

5 O take me, Saviour crucified,
And let me prove
That those who most have been forgiv’n
Have most of love.
