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 Oft I am so lonely, in this world of care,
But I know in Glory, no sad ones dwell there.
Yes, I know, in Heaven, Jesus waits for me;
When my work is ended, I shall with Him be.

2 When I enter Heaven — city, bright and fair,
He’ll be first to welcome me, a child and heir
To those heav’nly treasures laid, by Christ, in store,
For the weary traveler when this life is o’er.

3 Why, then, should I wander blindly here in sin,
When in Heaven yonder is a crown to win.
O dear Savior, guide me, keep me by Thy side;
May I now and ever in Thy love abide.
