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,

Never weather-beaten sail more willing bent to share

Author: Thomas Campion

Campion, Thomas, born c. 1567, d. 1619, and buried at St. Dunstan's in the West, London, March 1, 1619. He was a physician, poet, and musician, but his reputation rests mainly on his poetical works. These include various Masques performed before James I. and other noble personages. Of these some rare copies are in the British Museum. His Observations in the Art of English P┼ôsie, &c, was published in 1602, and his New Way of Making four parts in Counter-point, &c, 1620. Of his poems, five are given by Palgrave in his Treasury of Sacred Song, 1889. His connection with hymnody is very slight, and nothing by him is now in common use. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, New Supplement (1907)  Go to person page >
