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 weary one burdened with sin and care,
For refuge quickly fly!
The door of God’s mercy is open wide,
And Jesus is passing by.

Rest I will give you, rest, sweet rest,
O hear the Savior gently say;
Rest I will give you rest, sweet, rest,
Will you not come? O come today.

2. I suffered and died that you might have life,
Hear now the Savior say;
My comfort and peace I will give to you,
O come then without delay. [Refrain]

3. In pastures green I will make you feed,
And living waters give;
And there you’ll find rest from your care and toil,
Then come to Me now and live. [Refrain]
