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.

1 Rejoice, ye saints, rejoice and praise
The blessings of redeeming grace!
Jesus, your everlasting tower,
Stands firm against the tempter’s power.

2 He is a refuge ever nigh;
His love endures as mountains high;
His name’s a rock, which winds above
And waves below can never move.

3 While all things change, He changes not;
He ne’er forgets, though oft forgot;
His love will ever be the same;
His Word, enduring as His name.

4 Rejoice, ye saints, rejoice and praise
The blessings of this wondrous grace!
Jesus, your everlasting tower
Can bear, unmoved, the tempest’s power.
