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

Jesus I bless thee, Savior divine

Representative Text

1 Jesus I bless Thee, Saviour Divine,
Thou hast redeemed me, O Lord I am Thine,
Once I was lonely, now I am blest,
Under Thy shadow, peaceful I rest.

Nearer each moment, nearer to Thee,
Jesus my Saviour, still I would be,
Nearer each moment, nearer to Thee,
Jesus my Saviour still I would be.

2 I have no tribute, nothing to bring,
Yet Thou hast made me, the child of a King,
Sealed by adoption, ransomed by love,
Heir to a mansion waiting above. [Chorus]

3 This my rejoicing, this my delight,
Crowned with Thy glory, transcendently bright,
Soon with the millions, chanting Thy praise,
I shall adore Thee, Ancient of days. [Chorus]
