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.

Representative Text

1 My heart does overflow, a goodly theme is mine;
my eager tongue with joyful song does praise the King divine.
Supremely fair you are, your lips with grace o'erflow;
his richest blessings evermore does God on you bestow.

2 Now gird you with your sword, O strong and mighty one,
in splendid majesty arrayed, more glorious than the sun.
Triumphantly ride forth for meekness, truth, and right;
your arm shall gain the victory in wondrous deeds of might.

3 Your strength shall overcome all those that hate the King,
and under your dominion strong the nations you shall bring.
Your royal throne, O God, forevermore shall stand;
eternal truth and justice wield the scepter in your hand.

4 Since you were sinless found, the Lord, by you confessed,
anointed you with perfect joy, you are supremely blessed.
Your garments breathe of myrrh and spices sweet and rare;
glad strains of heav'nly music ring thro'out your palace fair.

5 Amid your glorious train the royal daughters stand,
and fairest gems bedeck your bride, the queen at your right hand.
O royal bride, give heed, my holy words attend;
for Christ, the King, forsake the world and ev'ry former friend.
