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,

Jesus, Lord, Redeemer

Representative Text

1 Jesus, Lord, Redeemer,
once for sinners slain,
crucified in weakness,
raised in pow'r to reign,
dwelling with the Father,
endless in your days,
unto you be glory,
honor, blessing, praise.

2 Faithful ones, communing
toward the close of day,
desolate and weary,
met you in the way.
So, when sun is setting,
come to us and show
all the truth; and in us
make our hearts to glow.

3 In the upper chamber,
where the ten in fear
gathered sad and troubled,
there you did appear.
So, O Lord, this evening,
bid our sorrows cease;
breathing on us, Savior,
say, "I give you peace."
