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 the world in sin is dying, loyal be;
Go you forth today in Jesus’ name;
All the evil hosts defying, loyal be,
And His peace and liberty proclaim!

Loyal be to the Lord,
Strive to banish sin and woe;
Loyal be, send the Word,
Till the world His love shall know.

2 Countless laborers He is needing, loyal be;
For the grain is unto harvest white;
Let Him not in vain be pleading, loyal be,
Gladly toil for Him until the night. [Refrain]

3 Think how Jesus died to save you, loyal be;
How He bids you others’ burdens bear;
Let not worldly cares enslave you, loyal be;
Seek the lost ones, and your blessings share. [Refrain]

4 Whatsoever may oppose you, loyal be;
Boldly do your duty, never fear;
Looking unto Him who chose you, loyal be;
For to bless and keep, He’s ever near. [Refrain]
