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. Since we have confidence to come to God,
Since Jesus made a way by His own blood,
Since He the veil did tear,
A living way made clear,
Our great High Priest is e’er,
Let us draw near.

2. Let us draw near to God, let us draw near;
With all sincerity, let us draw near.
Fully assured in faith,
With hearts cleansed by His grace,
All guilt and sin erased,
Let us draw near.

3. Let us hold to our hope, let us e’er hope,
In God’s salvation great, let us e’er hope.
God’s promises are true;
He’s always faithful, too;
What He has said, He’ll do;
Let us e’er hope.

4. Let us spur others on, let us spur on;
Let us consider how we may spur on.
Let us urge others to
Show love in all they do,
And good deeds e’er pursue;
Let us spur on.

5. Let us keep meeting e’er, let us still meet;
Till Christ returns one day, let us still meet.
Let us encourage e’er,
Christ’s soon return declare,
Till we His glory share,
Let us still meet.
