Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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]
