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 Shepherd of the sheep,
High-Priest of things to come,
Who didst in grace Thy servant keep,
And take him safely home;

2 Accept our song of praise
For all his holy care,
His zeal unquench'd, through length of days,
The trials that he bare.

3 On all our Pastors pour
The Spirit of Thy grace;
That, as he won the palm of yore,
So they may run their race:

4 That, when this life is done,
They may with him adore
The ever blesséd Three in One
In bliss forevermore.
