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 If your own heart you would gladden,
If your own life you would bless,
Lift another’s heavy burden,
Solace some one in distress.

Comfort others, comfort others,
Lessen human grief and pain,
Thus unfailing consolation
And rich blessing you will gain.

2 If you long to have the music
In your soul of joy’s sweet song,
Turn another’s sigh to singing,
As your pass your way along. [Refrain]

3 If you fain would have the brightness
Of love’s light upon you shine,
Cheer some sad and lonely spirit
With the rays of love divine. [Refrain]

4 If you seek the sweetest rapture
Of the fair celestial home,
Bring to Christ the lost and hopeless
From the sinful ways they roam. [Refrain]
