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 Let us linger at the cross,
’Tis the place of humble prayer,
Where the soul exchanges loss
For the gain it treasures there.
’Tis the place where Jesus meets
All who come to seek relief,
Bring your burden at His feet,
He allays the deepest grief.

2 Let us linger at the fount,
Whence the healing waters flow,
And the peace upon the mount
Where His fullness we may know.
Where the glory of His grace
And His power of pardon meet
All who linger at the place,
All who bow at Jesus’ feet.
