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 Resplendent sun! your brilliant beams
Should make my heart confess
A deeper awe of Him who is
Our Sun of Righteousness.
O little star, that sweetly shines
In heaven like a gem,
Your light recalls salvation’s star,
The Star of Bethlehem!

2 O falling rain, your welcome drops
Make drooping nature live;
Our Savior to all thirsting souls
Water of life will give.
O flower, opening to the sun,
Teach my heart ne’er to close
To Him whose pure, sweet life was like
The lily and the rose.

3 O guileless lamb, bring back to me
That life of toil and pain!
The sufferings of the heav’nly Lamb,
Who for my sins was slain.
Dear Savior, may we love Thee so,
That all good things may be
But mirrors, where our seeking eyes
Find image of Thee!
