Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. Jesus is our Shepherd, on His faithful breast
Safe from every danger, we His flock may rest;
By the cooling streamlet, in the valley fair,
He will gently lead us, by His tender care.

2. Jesus is our Shepherd, in the dewy mead,
And the verdant meadow He His flock will feed;
He will ne’er desert us, to the tempter’s power,
He will kindly cheer us in the darkest hour.

3. Jesus is our Shepherd, He the living way,
From His fold of mercy may we never stray;
When our hearts are wayward, when our steps would rove,
Bind us, gentle Shepherd, with Thy chain of love.
