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,

1 Merrily, cheerily,
Let us sing;
Highest praise
Let us raise
To our King;
Over land, over sea,
Send the strain,
Christ the Saviour lives again;
He lives to save the world from sin;
He lives to bring the wand’rers in;
He is our Saviour, praise Him forever,
Hail our risen Lord!

He arose, He arose,
He arose a victor over death;
Shout aloud He arose,
He arose from the grave,
All hail to our risen Lord.

2 Raise the strain,
Once again,
Scatter gloom;
He arose,
Conqu’ring foes
From the tomb;
On the air, sweet and clear,
Hear the song;
Let the earth the sound prolong;
He burst the bars that held him bound;
He scattered light on all around;
He is our Saviour, praise him forever,
Hail our risen Lord! [Refrain]

3 Night is past, day at last
O’er us gleams;
Light of love,
From above,
On us beams;
See today, on our way,
All is bright;
Past is now the gloom of night;
We come today with grateful lay
To praise the Lord of light and day;
He is our Saviour, praise Him forever,
Hail our risen Lord! [Refrain]
