We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Kom, huldaste förbarmare,
Som herde i bland fåren,
Och led oss, arma syndare,
Till källorna och såren,
till Sions berg och Sarons bet,
Där i en salig enighet
Hvar trogen själ har trefnad!

2 O kärlekshaf, utgjut din flod
Utöfver allas hjärtan,
Låt kraften af ditt helga blod
Fördrifva otrossmärtan!
Du, hela världens nådastol,
Förvandla med din ljufva sol
Vår köld i evig värma!
