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. Mine! what rays of glory bright
Now upon the promise shine!
I have found the Lord my light;
I am His, and He is mine.

Mine, oh mine, mine, oh, mine,
Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior,
I am His, and He is mine!

2. Mine! the promise often read,
Now in living truth impressed,
Once acknowledged in the head,
Now a fire within the breast. [Refrain]

3. Mine! the promise cannot change;
Mine! tho’ oft my eyes are dim;
Naught can from His love estrange,
Those who place their trust in Him. [Refrain]

4. Mine! tho’ oft my hand may fail,
He is strong and holds me fast;
By His blood I shall prevail,
He shall lead me home at last. [Refrain]

5. Mine! when death the bars shall break,
’Mid those glories all divine.
Satisfied I shall awake,
Clasp His feet, and call Him mine. [Refrain]
