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. On this pleasant Sabbath day,
let us sing a joyful lay,
To the God who reigns in earth and Heav’n above.
He has kept us thro’ the week,
and today His smiles we seek,
And we humbly ask His blessing and His love.

Sing, O sing a joyful song,
Youthful hearts the strain prolong,
Let us ask the Lord we praise,
In our best and sweetest lays,
For His blessing in our happy Sabbath throng.

2. He has kept us free from harm
by His kind and mighty arm,
And He gives us here His Word to guide our feet;
May we learn it now in love,
and direct our thoughts above,
Where about His throne the happy angels meet. [Refrain]

3. Praise to Him who will not fail
when our enemies assail,
And when dangers cluster thickly where we stand,
He will bring us safe at last,
where the dangers are all past,
To our happy homes in His celestial land. [Refrain]
