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

1 'Lift up your hearts': I hear the summons calling
forth from the heavenly altar where he stands --
our great High Priest, the Father's love revealing,
in priestly act, with pleading outspread hands.

2 'Lift up your hearts': with hearts' to heaven soaring
the Church exulting makes her glad reply --
'We lift them up unto the Lord', adoring;
our God and thine, through thee, we glorify.

3 'Lift up your hearts': alas, O Lord, I cannot
lift up aright my burdened heart to thee;
thou knowest, Lord, the cares that weigh upon it,
the chains that bind it struggling to be free.

4 O Love divine! thy promise comes to cheer me,
O Voice of pity! blessing and thrice blest --
'Come unto me, ye laden hearts and weary;
take up my yoke, and learn: I pledge you rest'.

5 I dare not waver by such grace invited,
I yield my heart, dear Lord: I close the strife.
Lift thou my heart until, with thine united,
I taste anew the joy of endless life.
