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 said of little children,
"Suffer them to come to Me,
For to such My heavenly kingdom
Shall a home of welcome be."
I love Him, He loves me,
And His child I want to be,
For He said "the little children,"
And I know that He means me.

2 When I try to be like Jesus—
Patient, gentle, meek and mild,
Then it is He smiles and loves me,
Then He owns me as His child.
I love Him, He loves me,
And His child I’ll try to be,
For He said "the little children,"
And I know that He means me.

3 Every day, as I grow older,
More I’ll try to do His will,
Growing wiser, stronger, better,
Every duty to fulfill.
I’ll love Him, He’ll love me,
His disciple I will be,
For He said "the little children,"
And I know that He means me.
