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.

1 Let us be patient, patient,
Think of the growing grain,
How long it lies in the darksome earth,
Nurtured by sun and rain.

Waiting, praying, striving day by day,
Something to do for the Master’s sake,
Something for Him to say.

2 Let us be patient, patient,
Strive as the grain to grow;
The tender grass and the ripening ear,
Heralds the corn we know. [Refrain]

3 Let us be patient, patient,
Day after day to gain,
Till fully ripe all our sheaves may be
Gathered like golden grain. [Refrain]
