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

Major, Johann, son of Johann Gross (Latinised to Major), farmer at Reinstedt, near Orlainünde, in Thuringia, was born at Reinstedt, Dec. 26, 1564. In 1592 he was ordained as diaconus at Weimar, and in 1605 became pastor and superintendent at Jena. In 1611 he was appointed professor at Jena (D.D., July 1612), and died there Jan. 4, 1654. (J. C.
