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, let us love our brothers
With the zeal of Christian love,
Thus to keep this holy precept
That is given from above,—

Refrain:
Let brotherly love continue,
Brotherly love, brotherly love,
Let brotherly love continue
Evermore.

2 Whene’er a brother wrongs us
We must love him just the same,
And in love forgive and bless him
In the Saviour’s loving name: [Refrain]

3 And as we help each other,
In the time of want and need,
Let the Saviour’s love and spirit
Be in ev’ry word and deed: [Refrain]

4 Then let us walk as brothers,
To the better home above,
Still abiding and rejoicing
In the brotherhood of love. [Refrain]
