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,
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 If I would reach that land of light,
That knows no gloom, no darksome night,
My soul must here with radiance glow,
God’s truth display, His glory show.

Refrain:
Lord, here in us Thy Heav’n prepare,
That we may find it heaven there;
With light and beauty, heav’nly love,
Attune our souls for Heav’n above.

2 If I would reach that land so fair,
Whose beauty shines beyond compare,
My life must here with beauty shine,
With purity and grace divine. [Refrain]

3 If I would reach that land of love,
Whose joy and peace await above,
I here must share the sufferer’s smart,
I here must win the tender heart. [Refrain]
