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

Just Because

Full Text

Just because it's etched in gold, doesn't mean it's good
Just because the others do, doesn't mean we should
Just because it might be old, doesn't mean it's wise
Just because it might have wings, doesn't mean it flies

Just because the words might rhyme, doesn't mean they're true
Just because we maybe can, doesn't mean we do
Just because the wolf might cry, doesn't mean it's sad
Just because the bird might sing, doesn't mean it's glad
