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. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Representative Text

1 Sinner, hark! the Savior’s calling,
Pleading o’er and o’er;
Hear those tender accents falling:
“Open wide the door.”

Humbly bow with broken spirit,
Heaven’s mercy to implore;
Jesus calls, O sinner, hear it!
Open wide the door.

2 Weary sinner, lost and sighing,
Hear the call once more;
See the Savior bleeding, dying;
Open wide the door. [Refrain]

3 Wake, the joy fore’er increasing,
On that blissful shore;
Give thyself in Jesus’ keeping;
Open wide the door. [Refrain]

4 Hear the gospel message given,
Bar it out no more;
Christ will speak thy sins forgiven;
Open wide the door. [Refrain]
