We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Sing, ev’ry voice, glad melodies of praise,
Sing and rejoice, your songs of triumph raise,
Join in the hymns, with loving voices bring
Praise to our God above, Ruler, Lord and King.

Sing, ev’ry voice, give praise to God above,
Blend into song our tribute of unfailing love,
O sing, ev’ry voice, yes, sing in glad accord,
Tribute of praise, and worship to our Lord.

2 Far overhead the skies with glory shine,
Brightly they shed their golden light divine,
but in our hearts, this holy Sabbath day,
Shines the diviner Light, with its heav’nly ray. [Refrain]

3 Sing then, oh sing a hymn of grateful love,
Glad tribute bring to Him Who rules above,
All charm and light, all music, joy and cheer,
Come from our Father’s hand, to His children here. [Refrain]
