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,

Representative Text

1 Oh, drink of the river of pleasure,
A deep, living stream of delight;
The source of all blessings forever,
It flashes in heaven’s pure light.

Oh, drink of the river of pleasure and love,
I feel it so deep in my soul;
It gladdens the one who is born from above,
And maketh the wounded heart whole.

2 Oh, drink of the river of pleasure,
’Tis sparkling with joy for thy soul;
It flows in the bosom forever,
That’s given to Father’s control. [Refrain]

3 Oh, drink of the river of pleasure,
For thee it is flowing along;
Down from the bounteous Giver,
Its music a sweet, charming song. [Refrain]

4 Oh, drink of the river of pleasure,
And surely thy spirit shall know
Thy longing and thirsting are over,
Thy blessings forever shall flow.[Refrain]
