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.

Representative Text

1 I will go, I will go, to the Saviour I’ll go,
Burdened with sin and fear;
He’ll forgiveness impart,—he will speak to my heart
Comforting words of cheer.

Refrain:
Saviour, receive me, Saviour, receive me,
Here at thy feet I bow;
Saviour, receive me, Saviour, receive me,
Saviour, receive me now.

2 I will go, I will go, to the Saviour I’ll go,
Pleading his own dear love;
With the blood shed for sin he will cleanse me within,
Fit me to dwell above. [Refrain]

3 I will go, I will go, to the Saviour I’ll go,
Seeking my soul’s true home;
My atonement is made and my ransom is paid;
Now to his arms I come. [Refrain]

4 I will go, I will go, to the Saviour I’ll go,
Blest Lamb of Calvary;
I am seeking his face, for I know that his grace
Waits now to welcome me. [Refrain]
