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,
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. Light of the world’s dark story,
Jesus, Thy name we praise;
Thou art the Lord of glory,
The brightness of our days.
We would go singing, singing,
Along our pilgrim road,
With love and hope upwinging,
Haste to our fixed abode.

2. Joy for the world’s salvation
Wrought amid sins and fears,
Man’s glorious consummation
Shining beyond our tears.
Songs in the room of sighing,
Joy in despite of woe,
On God’s good care relying
That leads us as we go.
