We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 I thank thee, Father, that I live
To see this day of thine:
This day of rest, this day of peace,
Proclaims thy love divine.

2 To-day, I thank thee, most of all,
For thy best gift of love;
The gift of Christ, whose saving grace
We all, to-day, may prove.

3 And when the evening shades of life
Bring slumber and repose,
Oh, may I see thee face to face,
Where Sabbaths never close!
