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,

Saxby, Vicar of East Clevedon, Somersetshire. Her work, The Dove on the Cross, was published in 1849. It has passed into numerous editions, and from it several hymns have come into common use. This was followed by The Voice of the Bird, in 1875; and Aunt Effie’s Gift to the Nursery, 1876. Sometimes Mrs. Saxby's Dove on the Cross is dated 1819, but in error. The compilation known as Hymns and Thoughts for the Sick and Lonely, by a Lady, London, J Nisbet & Co., 1848, although it contains several of her hymns in an altered form, is ascribed to her in error… Go to person page >
