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 coming! O hear the glad song,
Coming again, 'though he's tarried so long,
To gather his saints a jubilant throng,
Jesus is coming again!

Jesus is coming, He's coming again;
Jesus is coming, yes, coming again;
He'll gather his saints from hilltop and plain,
Jesus is coming again.

2 Jesus is coming! His saints shall awake,
Coming again, earth shall tremble and shake;
Our God's waiting ones of glory partake,
Jesus is coming again! [Chorus]

3 Jesus is coming! His promise is true,
Coming to earth and all things he'll renew;
His saints will rejoice and welcome him too;
Jesus is coming again! [Chorus]

4 Jesus is coming! The bells loudly ring,
Praise never ending the saints sweetly sing;
Coming to reign as our glorious King,
Jesus is coming again! [Chorus]

5 Jesus is coming! O quickly prepare
To enter with him the home over there;
Forever to live in mansions so fair,
Jesus is coming again! [Chorus]
