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 world, behold Him dying
Who is thy life supplying;
Behold! He dies for Thee:
He who in glory reigneth,
No scorn, no shame disdaineth,
From endless death my soul to free.

2 Now from my Savior floweth
The blood His love betstoweth
On us, that we may live!
What grief His Spirit rendeth!
Whilst thus He condescendeth
His life for us His foes to give!

3 Of His own will He dieth,
Who to His Father crieth,
O Father! mercy show:
Come, children of transgression;
To Jesus make confession;
Your all to His great love you owe.
