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,
Harry Plantinga

1. Jesus commands you to go today
And lighten another’s care;
Point them to Him as the Light, the Way,
He’ll always the burden share.

Refrain
Lighten a care,
Tell Him in prayer;
Jesus sends happiness everywhere,
And lightens His children’s care.

2. Jesus will give you the victor’s power,
So lighten another’s care;
Give you a blessing each coming hour
And help you the cross to bear. [Refrain]

3. Draw from the fountain of boundless grace,
And lighten another’s care;
Walk in the light of the Savior’s face,
Inherit a mansion fair [Refrain]
