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,

1 Jesus is a Friend so kind,
Truer Friend you cannot find;
O, I would not live without Him if I could; -
He will help you to the end,
On His love you may depend;
O, I would not live without Him if I could.

Chorus:
O, I would not live without Him if I could, if I could,
O, I would not live without Him if I could; -
He is loving, tender, kind,
Truer Friend you cannot find;
O, I would not live without Him if I could.

2 If you turn this Friend away,
He will follow you each day;
O, I would not live without Him, if I could; -
When you fall, this Friend is near,
Call on Him, you need not fear;
O, I would not live without Him if I could. [Chorus]

3 When your head is bowed with grief,
Then this Friend will bring relief;
O, I would not live without Him if I could; -
When you stand before the throne,
He will claim you for His own;
O, I would not live without Him if I could. [Chorus]
