We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 O come, let happy voices
Their sweetest notes employ,
O praise the heav’nly Father
In songs of hope and joy.

Refrain:
Lift high the strains of gladness
And banish gloom and sadness
O praise the heav’nly Father
In songs of hope and joy.

2 Behold the loving-kindness
On every side displayed,
And praise the great Creator
Whose hand the world has made. [Refrain]

3 The smallest flow’r or dewdrop
That beautifies the sod,
With grandest sea and mountain
Exalts the name of God. [Refrain]

4 Like gentle rains descending
Our Maker’s blessings fall,
Unite with Nature’s choral
And praise the Lord of all. [Refrain]
