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,

Representative Text

1 I love the church of God,
Structure divine;
Her children all of one,
Through the anointed Son,
Here and around the throne,
Pure and sublime.

2 I love the church of God;
Her closed door,
Held by that pierced hand,
Opens at His command,
Welcomes the contrite friend,
Wealthy or poor.

3 I love the church of God;
Her gates of praise
Re-echo far and near
Strains of angelic cheer,
Mark each prophetic year,
Number the days.

4 I love the church of God,
Beautiful bride:
Fine linen, pure and clean,
No spot on her is seen;
Low by her pastures green
Still waters glide.

5 I love the church of God,
Refuge secure:
When storms and thunders loud
Break from the threat’ning cloud,
Anguish the world enshroud,
She will endure.

6 I love the church of God;
Her courts of love
Succor the fainting heart,
Strength to the weak impart;
Perfect in every part,
Here and above.
