Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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.

1 I was glad when they said unto me,
Let us go to the house of the Lord,
For my heart was so thirsty for Thee,
And so hungry to feed on Thy word.

Refrain:
I was glad, I was glad,
Glad to go to the house of the Lord;
I was glad, I was glad,
To be fed on His life-giving word.

2 I was glad when I entered thy gates,
O Jerusalem, city of God;
Here the promise of Israel waits,
In the courts where the fathers have trod. [Refrain]

3 I will pray for thy peace, blessed home,
And that plenty within thee be found;
For to thee in my hunger I come,
Where the grace of my God doth abound. [Refrain]
