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,

1 My song shall be of Jesus,
His mercy crowns my days,
He fills my cup with blessings,
And tunes my heart to praise;
My song shall be of Jesus,
The precious Lamb of God,
Who gave Himself my ransom,
And bought me with His blood.

2 My song shall be of Jesus,
When sitting at His feet,
I call to mind His goodness
And know my joy's complete;
My song shall be of Jesus,
Whatever ills befall,
I’ll sing the grace that saves me,
And triumphs over all.

3 My song shall be of Jesus,
While pressing on my way
To where my home shines glorious
In pure and perfect day.
And when my soul shall enter
The many mansions fair,
A song of praise to Jesus
I’ll sing forever there.
