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,

1 O Lord, we sing Thy great humility:
By Thee redeemed, our all we bring to Thee.
That we might live
Thou didst on Calvary give
Thy life for our salvation.
Oh great humiliation!

2 Before all worlds Thou art, who yet didst deign
To take our flesh and bow to mortal pain.
Thee crucified
Thy guilty foes deride:
O Lord, for their salvation
Was Thy humiliation!

3 No more let pride in us, O Jesu! dwell,
Or vainly shall our praise Thy sorrows tell.
May all like Thee
Now meek and lowly be:
So bless our contemplation
Of Thy humiliation.
