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,

Make room for Jesus, room, sad heart

Representative Text

1 Make room for Jesus! room, sad heart,
Beguiled and sick of sin;
Bid every alien guest depart,
And rise and let him in.

2 Make room for Jesus! room, make room!
His hand is at the door;
He comes to banish guilt and gloom,
And bless thee more and more.

3 Make room for Jesus! soul of mine,
He waits response to-day;
His smile is peace; his grace, divine,--
O turn him not away!

4 Make room for Jesus! by and by,
'Midst saint and seraphim,
He'll welcome to his throne on high
The soul that welcomed him.
