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,

Sweet rest in Jesus, home of the soul

Author: Barney Elliott Warren
Tune: [Sweet rest in Jesus]
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Sweet rest in Jesus,
Home of the soul,
Growing more precious,
While ages shall roll.

Home, home,
Home for all the blest;
Home, home,
Precious home of rest.

2 Sweet rest in Jesus,
While here we stay;
And He’s prepared us
A home far away. [Refrain]

3 Sweet rest in Jesus,
Home in the skies—
It must be glorious,
Where man never dies. [Refrain]

4 Sweet rest in Jesus,
There to abide,
Ever victorious,
Where naught can betide. [Refrain]
