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 Most perfect is the law of God,
restoring those that stray;
his testimony is most sure,
proclaiming wisdom's way.

O how love I thy law! O how love I thy law!
It is my meditation all the day.
O how love I thy law! O how love I thy law!
It is my meditation all the day.

2 The precepts of the Lord are right;
with joy they fill the heart;
the Lord's commandments all are pure,
and clearest light impart. [Refrain]

3 The fear of God is undefiled
and ever shall endure;
the statutes of the Lord are truth
and righteousness most pure. [Refrain]

4 They warn from ways of wickedness
displeasing to the Lord,
and in the keeping of his Word
there is a great reward. [Refrain]
