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.

Peace Is Not What I Looked For

Representative Text

Peace is not what I looked for
Peace is not what I got
Looked to give someone troubles
Troubles now I've a lot
If a flower isn't care for
It will die in its pot
Peace is not what I looked for
Peace is not what I got.
