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,

O Savior! when thy loving hand

Representative Text

1. O Savior! when Thy loving hand
Has brought us o’er the sea,
Through perils many, safe to land—
The land we longed to see.

2. Oh, help us, for Thy help we need
Each moment more and more
In perils that we scarcely heed,
More deadly, on the shore.

3. Lord, save us! and the Christian name
Oh, help us pure to keep,
On sea or land, alike the same,
Till we in death shall sleep.

4. Then through Thy merits, washed and clean
From sin’s polluting stain,
In raiment white may we be seen
With all Thy saints to reign.
