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.

Notes

Jesu, soft harmonious Name. C. Wesley. [Prayer for Unity.] Given in Hymns & Sacred Poems, 1749, vol. ii. p. 243, in 4 stanzas of 8 lines (Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. v. p. 475). It was included in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1780, No. 524, and has been repeated in several collections, and sometimes as "Jesus, blest harmonious Name," as in the Leeds Hymn Book, 1853. In Martineau's Hymns, 1840 and 1873, stanza ii. is given as "Lord, subdue our selfish will." This forms a poetic gem of two stanzas.

--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
