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 The Babe in Bethl'em’s manger laid,
In humble form so low,
By wond’ring angels is surveyed
Through all His scenes of woe.

Refrain:
Noël, Noël,
Now sing a Savior’s birth,
All hail His coming down to earth,
Who raises us to heav’n.

2 A Savior, sinners all around!
Sing, shout the wondrous word;
Let every bosom hail the sound,
A Savior! Christ the Lord. [Refrain]

3 For, not to sit on David’s throne
With worldly pomp and joy,
He came for sinners to atone,
And Satan to destroy. [Refrain]

4 Well may we sing the Savior’s birth,
Who need the grace so given,
And hail His coming down to earth,
Who raises us to heaven. [Refrain]
