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,

Representative Text

1 Marching up the narrow way,
Marching up the King’s highway,
With our footsteps in the right,
We’ll take the world by faith and might.
Christ, our captain, leads the host,
He is ever at His post.
And with courage true and strong
We’ll conquer every wrong.

March, march, march, steadily march, march on,
March, march, march, until the victory is won;
March, march, march, led by the Gospel light,
Strong in His strength of might,
March on, march on.

2 Every day on every side
Subtle enemies abide,
But with sword and shield of truth,
We’ll surely triumph in our youth.
When our warfare here is done,
And our crown of victory won,
We shall lay our arms aside
And with our king abide. [Refrain]
