Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 In the place of mansions fair
I have waiting for me there
A building not made with hands;
So I’ll sing a joyful song,
For I’ll go ere very long
To a building not made with hands.

Refrain:
Not made with hands, not made with hands,
A building not made with hands, Hallelujah!
And I soon shall away forever to stay
In the building not made with hands.

2 Thro’ the Pentecostal pow’r
I am saved this very hour
A building not made with hands;
For the precious blood applied
Makes me fully satisfied
A building not made with hands. [Refrain]

3 When my earthly work is o’er
And I reach the other shore
A building not made with hands;
I shall see my Saviour’s face
Who redeemed me by his grace
A building not made with hands. [Refrain]
