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,

Jesus, blessed Lord and Savior

Representative Text

1. Jesus, blessèd Lord and Savior,
Bowed in death on Calv’ry’s tree,
Darkest hour of bitter judgment,
Borne to set Thy people free;
Sweet our portion, sweet our portion,
As we thus remember Thee.

2. From the highest heights of glory,
To the cross of deepest shame,
Thus accomplishing redemption,
Jesus in His pity came;
Precious Savior, precious Savior,
We adore Thy matchless name.

3. From the darkness and the distance,
From the crushing load of sin,
Blessèd Savior, Thou hast freed us,
By Thy blood hast made us clean;
In Thy beauty, in Thy beauty,
Now Thy ransomed ones are seen.

4. Thus assured of Thine acceptance
We to God may now draw near;
In the holiest may worship;
Perfect love hath cast out fear;
To the Father, to the Father,
We in Christ are near and dear.
