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.

Representative Text

1 On Cal’vry’s hill of sorrow
Where sin’s demands were paid,
And rays of hope for tomorrow
Across our path were laid.

Its waves which reach the throne of God,
Are sweeping over me.

2 Today no condemnation
Abides to turn away
My soul from His salvation,
He’s in my heart to stay. [Refrain]

3 When gloom and sadness whisper,
You’ve sinned, no use to pray,

And He tells me to say: [Refrain]

4 And when we reach the portal
Where life forever reigns,
The ransomed hosts grand final
Will be this glad refrain. [Refrain]
