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 sailor, on life’s stormy sea,
Your boat is driven to’ard the reef;
You do not know the danger near,
Nor feel your need of quick relief.

Refrain:
Take hold the lifeline, hold it fast;
Your danger then will soon be past.
Within your reach the line we throw;
Take hold before you sink below.

2 The rocks are hidden in the deep,
Your vessel will be shattered there;
Now is the time to save your life,
Disaster comes on unaware. [Refrain]

3 See! now your boat is in the shoal,
The roaring waves dash o’er its deck;
It breaks in pieces, scatters far,
O sailor, cling not to the wreck! [Refrain]
