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 Nothing can be greater than a heart made right,
And with love divine aglow,
Living in the sunlight, shining clear and bright,
Whiter than the whitest snow.

Refrain:
Nothing can be greater than a heart made right,
Nothing can be purer than a soul made white;
To serve the Lord and King is the most import thing,
And nothing can be greater than a heart made right.

2 Nothing can be greater than a heart made right,
One that is from sin set free,
Nothing makes you bolder in the thickest fight,
Nothing can more glorious be. [Refrain]

3 Nothing can be greater than a heart made right,
Earthly things will pass away,
Worldly fame and riches soon will take their flight,
But your soul will live for aye. [Refrain]
