We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 O the stream of living water!
From the stricken Rock, it flows,
Free to ev'ry son and daughter--
Cure for all our sins and woes!

O the water, flowing water,
All the thirsty to relieve;
Free to ev'ry son and daughter--
Come to Jesus, and receive!

2 Thro' the wilderness, we're going,
To the land of promise, fair;
Where the tree of life is growing,
By the river, flowing there! [Chorus]

3 Praise the Lord, I feel it flowing,
Rippling, singing, in my soul;
And my Christian strength is growing!
Jesus Christ hath made me whole! [Chorus]
