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.

Representative Text

1. Jesus, the rising Lord of all,
His love to man commends,
Poor worms He blushes not to call
His brethren and His friends.

2. Who basely all forsook their Lord
In His distress, and fled,
To these He sends the joyful word,
When risen from the dead.

3. Go tell the vile deserters!—“No:
My dearest brethren tell,
Their Advocate to Heav’n I go,
To rescue them from hell.

4. “Lo! to My father I ascend!
Your Father now is He,
My God, and yours, whoe’er depend
For endless life on Me.

5. “Henceforth I ever live above
For you to intercede,
The merit of My dying love,
For all mankind to plead.

6. Sinners, I rose again to show
Your sins are all forgiv’n,
And mount above the skies, that you
May follow Me to Heav’n.
