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.

Representative Text

1. Jesus, grant us all a blessing,
Shouting, singing, send it down;
Lord, above, may we go praying,
And rejoicing in Thy love.
Shout, O glory! Sing glory hallelujah!
I'm going where pleasure never dies.

2. Jesus, pardon all our follies,
Since together we have been.
Make us humble, make us holy,
Cleanse us all from ev'ry sin.
Shout, O glory! Sing glory hallelujah!
I'm going where pleasure never dies.
