Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.

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,

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