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 In thy clear, transparent glow,
Peaceful, cleansing river,
In thy sparkling beauty flow
O’er my heart forever.

By thy shore, oh, let me be,
Soul refining river;
Ever let me drink of thee,
Thirst no more forever.

2 There is music in thy wave,
Calmest, purest river;
In thy waters let me bathe
Ever and forever. [Refrain]

3 In thy bosom’s crystal sea,
Gentle, tranquil river,
Let my spirit’s image be
Mirrored there forever. [Refrain]

4 There behold life’s fragrant tree
Blooming by the river;
’Neath its shade my walk shall be
Ever and forever. [Refrain]
