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 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.

1. Sing, O sing, the dear old story
Of our Savior’s matchless love;
Sing of Jesus and His glory
With the ransomed host above.

Refrain
Sing, O sing the love of Jesus—
Sound His praises far and near;
Sing the wondrous story over,
’Till the whole wide world shall hear.

2. Sing of love to you so precious,
Tell, in song, how Jesus died;
Let sweet music draw the millions
To the dear Redeemer’s side. [Refrain]

3. Ye redeemed ones, sing the story!
Sing it o’er and o’er again,
Until every tribe and nation
Join to sing the glad refrain. [Refrain]
