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 Our Father is ready our voices to hear,
He listens to all,
We need but to ask and our Helper is near,
He listens, He listens to all,

An anthem of glory, a heart’s broken story,
A multitude’s song, or a child’s softest call;
To each He’s attending, swift answer He’s sending,
He listens, He listens to all,

2 Our songs of thanksgiving, our sorrowing cry,
He listens to all,
No word but ascends to His dwelling on high,
He listens, He listens to all, [Chorus]

3 The rich and the needy, the old and the young,
He listens to all,
The valiant and strong and the faltering tongue,
He listens, He listens to all, [Chorus]

4 So turn not away from His sympathy sweet,
He listens to all,
But come with your sorrows and joys to His feet
He listens, He listens to all, [Chorus]
