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 do not ask, I would not know,
What Time is bringing me;
I only pray, come weal or woe,
That I may faithful be.

Where He doth lead I’ll follow on,
Whate’er the cost may be;
And in the dawning that awaits
I shall His glory see.

2 The future in God’s keeping lies;
The past He doth command;
To Him I lift my fearless eyes,
Nor ask to understand. [Refrain]

3 Under the shadow of His wings
I lodge, while Time is spent,
And glorify the word that brings
The secret of content. [Refrain]
