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 paradise reposing,
By life’s eternal well,
The tender lambs of Jesus
In greenest pastures dwell.

2. There palms and tiny crownlets
Aglow with brightest gem,
Bedeck the baby martyrs
Who died in Bethlehem.

3. With them the rose-wreathed army
Of children undefiled,
Who passed through mortal torments
For love of Christ the child;

4. With them in peace unending,
With them in joyous mirth,
Are all the stainless infants
Which since have gone from earth.

5. The angels, once their guardians,
Their fellows now in grace,
With them, in love adoring,
See God the Father’s face.

6. The lullaby to hush them
In that eternal rest,
Is sweet angelic singing,
Their nurses mothers blest.

7. O Jesu, loving shepherd,
Who tenderly dost bear
Thy lambs in Thine own bosom,
Bring us to join them there.
