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. O Lord, within my soul,
I long for purity,
To be complete and whole
Alone through Thee.

Refrain
There is no other hope,
There is no other plea;
Salvation, full salvation free,
Must come alone through Thee.

2. I bend before Thy cross,
And know my heart can be
Cleansed from its sin and dross
Alone through Thee. [Refrain]

3. I pray at Thy dear feet,
Salvation full entreat,
And want to feel my love
In Thee complete. [Refrain]

4. My faith Thy Word believes,
The promise made to me,
And perfect peace receives
Alone through Thee. [Refrain]
