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, 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,

1 Saviour, listen to our prayer,
Poor and sinful though we are;
Guilt confessing,
Give Thy blessing,
Grant Thy loving care.

O God our Father, Christ our King,
Now to Thee our hearts we bring;
Keep them ever, Blessed Saviour,
Till in heav’n Thy love we sing.

2 Strength is Thine; we often stray
From the pure and holy way;
Wilt Thou guide us,
Walk beside us,
Nearer every day! [Refrain]

3 Then may we, when life is o’er,
Stand with Thee on yonder shore;
Freed from sinning,
Heaven winning,
Praising evermore. [Refrain]
