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

Representative Text

1 Speed away! speed away! O ye heralds of light,
There are millions enshrouded in nature’s dark night,
Who are willing to hear, and the truth to receive,
But know of no Savior on whom to believe.
O they’re dying by thousands in sin every day!
Speed away! speed away! speed away!

2 Let the Church to the help of Jehovah draw near—
Come with love, and with faith, and with fervor in prayer!
Let her fling to the breeze the pure banner of truth,
And enlist in the struggle her warm-hearted youth;
Let the parents and children, and everyone say,
Speed away! speed away! speed away!

3 We will lay on the altar our money and prayers:
And we’ll bathe every offering in sympathy’s tears—
For the Jews and Mohammedans, Gentiles and all;
On Jehovah by night and by day we will call,
And ye heralds of mercy, oh! make no delay!
Speed away! speed away! speed away!

4 Speed away! speed away with a message from Heav’n,
To all nations of men let the tidings be giv’n
That Messiah has triumphed, His foes are all slain,
And the earth as an Eden is blushing again!
O great Savior, let nothing this conquest delay
Speed away! speed away! speed away!
