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 stood face to face with a sorrow,
That threatened my bark to o’erwhelm,
But peace floated in in the morrow,
My Father was guiding the helm.
My Father was guiding the helm,
My Father was guiding the helm,
But peace floated in in the morrow,
My Father was guiding the helm.

2. I rode o’er a tempest rocked billow,
Which threatened my life to o’erwhelm,
But I sweetly slept on my pillow,
My Father was guiding the helm.
My Father was guiding the helm,
My Father was guiding the helm,
But I sweetly slept on my pillow,
My Father was guiding the helm.

3. O’er my soul death’s shadows were creeping,
That threatened my faith to o’erwhelm,
But the angels a vigil were keeping,
My Father was guiding the helm.
My Father was guiding the helm,
My Father was guiding the helm,
But the angels a vigil were keeping,
My Father was guiding the helm.
