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 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 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 O the blessings we receive,
When on Jesus we believe,
And are walking in the Spirit day by day;
When His word is our delight,
And our path is growing bright,
While by faith we learn to trust Him and obey.

Refrain:
O praise the Lord, for He is good;
O praise the Lord, our God above,
For He keeps us every hour,
And upholds us by His pow’r,
While we dwell within the sunshine of His love.

2 Precious blessings shall descend,
When before His throne we bend,
And the glory-cloud is resting o’er us there;
Every heart with joy is fill’d,
Every wave of sorrow still’d,
While we feel the hallow’d bliss of answer’d pray’r. [Refrain]

3 When the world is overcome,
And its battles fought and won,
When we see our Lord and Saviour in the sky;
How our hearts will overflow,
With the rapture we shall know,
When we meet Him in His kingdom by and by. [Refrain]
