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.

Representative Text

1 Sing, my soul from bondage free,
Israel’s God thy God will be;
In the dark and foamy sea

Refrain:

Israel’s God thy God will be.

2 “Sweets of sin”—delusive dream!
Burning thirst and poisonous stream;
Found of Life thy streams outpour,
Let me drink and thirst no more. [Refrain]

3 Fainting on the desert way,
For my “daily bread” I pray;
Bread of Life, thy Life I need,
Let me ever on thee feed. [Refrain]

4 When the enemy is nigh,
Lord, to thee, to thee I cry;
Save me in the trying hour,
Save my soul from Satan’s power. [Refrain]
