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,—

Let brotherly love continue,
Brotherly love, brotherly love,
Let brotherly love continue

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]
