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

Jesus' mercies never fail

Full Text

1 Jesus‘ mercies never fail,
This we prove at every meal;
Lord, we thank Thee for Thy grace,
Gladly join to sing Thy praise.

2 Lord, the gifts Thou dost bestow
Can refresh and cheer us too;
But no gift can to the heart
Be what Thou, our Saviour, art.
