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.

1 O blessed Son of God,
In love and faith we plead,
That Thou wouldst bind our minds and hearts
In brotherhood of need.

2 Our Elder Brother Thou,
Whose heritage we share,
Our kindred lives we offer Thee
In brotherhood of prayer.

3 Thou didst the will of Him
Who sent Thee from above;
Thou sendest us, as He sent Thee,
In brotherhood of love.

4 To serve Thy kingdom, Lord,
To quiet sin’s turmoil,
Do Thou ordain and consecrate
Our Brotherhood of toil.

5 Thou man of Galilee,
O wilt Thou live again!
Abide within, control, inspire,
Our brotherhood of men.

Amen.
