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. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Representative Text

1 Sad and weary with my longing,
Filled with shame, because of sin;
As I am in conscious weakness,
Here I would salvation win.

All I have I leave for Jesus,
I am counting it but dross,
I am coming to the Master,
I am clinging to the cross.

2 O the joy of knowing Jesus,
It is dawning on my soul;
I am finding his salvation,
And the pow’r that makes me whole. [Refrain]

3 O refine me by thy spirit,
Make my earthly life sublime,
With my heart a home for Jesus,
Till I’m done with earth and time. [Refrain]
