Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. 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, 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 at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 , or you can click the Donate button below.

On behalf of the entire team,
Harry Plantinga

Should we not glory in the cause

Should we not glory in the cause

Representative Text

1 Should we not glory in the cause?
Of Christ our Sovereign Lord;
Who will be as he ever was,
Our great and sure reward.

2 The Christian man should never faint,
Tho' he should feel the smart--
It is the Cross that makes the Saint,
And purifies the heart.

3 This was Saint Paul's sincere desire,
For this he humbly pray'd;
O! may the Lord your minds inspire!
With grace as ye may need.

4 The Lord endow you from above!
Give you to understand:
The height and depth of saving love,
And bounties of his hand.

5 Far more than we can think or know,
Or any wise believe;
Will Christ on humble souls bestow,
Who seek in him to live.
