Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 My Father, hear my prayer,
Before I go to rest;
It is Thy little child
That cometh to be blest.

2 Forgive me all my sin,
And let me sleep this night
In safety and in peace
Until the morning light.

3 Lord, help me every day
To love Thee more and more,
And try to do Thy will
Much better than before.

4 Now look upon me, Lord,
Ere I lie down to rest;
It is Thy little child
That cometh to be blest.

Amen.
