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.

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,
Harry Plantinga

1. Singing, singing, light and free,
As the merry birds are we;
For a precious friend is near,
Bending now our song to hear.

Refrain
Very thankful we should be,
For a friend so dear as He;
Very thankful we should be,
For a friend so dear as He.

2. Singing, singing all the day,
As the moments glide away;
Ever grateful for His care
And the tender love we share. [Refrain]

3. Singing, singing, O how sweet,
Resting at the Savior’s feet;
Looking up with joyful eyes,
To His dwelling in the skies. [Refrain]
