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, we are little soldiers, in the army of the Lord,
Standing in the ranks or marching forward at His word,
We’ll follow Him where’er He leads, for He the way doth know,
Marching in His footsteps, we to vict’ry go.

We are marching, we are marching,
In the army of the Lord,
We are marching, we are marching,
In the army of the Lord.

2 Tho’ we are little soldiers, there is much that we can do,
Jesus needs good soldiers, and He needs the children too,
And though we’re only little ones, we’ll do our very best,
Brave and loyal, we will try to stand each test. [Refrain]

3 We’ve Jesus for our Captain, and He leads us day by day,
See His banner overhead, ‘tis pointing out the way,
Then march along in steady line, and let the watchword ring,
Onward, ever onward, with our Lord and King. [Refrain]
