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 the sweet Immanuel’s land,
Just across the river,
Cometh neither sin nor death,
But God’s peace forever.

In that land, blessed land,
Just beyond the river,
Jesus Christ, our Saviour, King,
Lives and reigns forever.

2 In the sweet Immanuel’s land,
Golden harps are ringing;
Sweetest songs of love and praise
Angel voices singing. [Refrain]

3 In the sweet Immanuel’s land,
Just beyond the river,
We shall see our Saviour, King,
Know and love him ever. [Refrain]
