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,
Harry Plantinga

Speak, dear Lord, let me hear

Representative Text

1 Speak, dear Lord, let me hear thy sweet voice,
Drawing my spirit still closer to thee;
Now by faith let me see the kind smile of thy love,
Shining clearer and brighter on me.

‘Tis joy, joy, heavenly joy!
The blest holy Dove e’er brings from above;
‘Tis joy, joy, heavenly joy!
That’s shed by the spirit of love.

2 Fill me now with thy peace, blessed Lord,
So shall I ever thy goodness adore;
More like thee, Savior dear, may I grow day by day,
Till thy image I bear evermore. [Refrain]

3 Fruits of grace in my life shall abound,
Sweeter than perfume of lily or rose;
Pouring joy, like a fount, on the hearts all around,
Until they on thy bosom repose. [Refrain]
