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,

Representative Text

1. Less of self and more of Jesus,
Less of man and more of God;
Earnest prayer of many workers
In the vineyard of the Lord.
Less of self and more of Jesus
Girds the soul with holy pow’r,
Brightens life, and sweetens labor,
In the use of every hour.

Less of self and more of Jesus;
Less of man and more of God;
Earnest prayer of many workers
In the vineyard of the Lord.

2. Less of self and more of Jesus,
Pleads the saint in earnest prayer,
For he labors souls to rescue
From the tempter’s cruel snare.
Self concealed, faith works its wonders,
Trusts the merit of the blood;
Claims for Christ the sinner’s ransom,
Leads the penitent to God. [Refrain]

3. Less of self and more of Jesus,
As in social life we meet;
May the beauties of salvation
Others lead to Jesus’ feet.
Not in vain exalt we Jesus,
Not in vain hide self away;
Great the joy and sweet the pleasure
Heaven grants us on our way. [Refrain]
