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 Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing now,
As we humbly in Thy presence bow;
Guide and guard us ev’ry step we take,
And bless us for Thy dear name’s sake.

Lord, dismiss us with Thy blessing;
Fill our hearts with joy, and love, and peace;
May Thy presence sweetly cheer us
Till our conflicts all shall cease.

2 May we follow closely ev’ry day
In Thy footsteps thro’ the thorny way,
Look above the clouds and darkness drear,
And Thou wilt cast away each fear. [Refrain]

3 When at last our work on earth is done,
And our toilsome, weary race is run,
Lead us safely to our home above,
And keep us ever in Thy love. [Refrain]
