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, 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,
Harry Plantinga

1 Once more our grateful, strengthened hearts,
Alight with grace divine,
Would bring to Thee, our mighty King,
New token we are Thine.
Thy love has guided all our lives
In paths with mercy bright;
And health, and hope, and prayerful aim,
Inspire our song tonight.

2 Unseen the sun yet proves his reign,
By mellow, full orbed moon;
So we to Thee would witness bear
In radiance all Thine own;
Tho’ darkness, doubt, and spectral fears
Enchain our fellow men,
The light is Thine, and they are Thine,
Oh, bring them back again.
