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,

Representative Text

1 In hunger, watch, and prayer,
These forty days were passed
By Thee, O Jesu; and Thy love
Doth sanctify our fast.

2 Through fleshly lusts indulged,
Man lost his first estate;
Thou wouldst restore by leading us
Our flesh to subjugate.

3 Be with Thy Church, O Lord;
Our self-denials bless;
Accept the tears Thy children shed
O’er all their frowardness.

4 Forgive, most gracious Lord,
The follies we deplore,
Prevent us with Thy guiding hand
That we may sin no more.

5 So do Thou in our souls
The power of sin destroy;
And make us fit to worship Thee
With Easter’s holy joy.
