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 cross is heavy,—this I know,—
But there’s a blessed place
Where I can flee in time of need
And find sufficient grace.

Refrain:
Sufficient grace, sufficient grace,
His word now offers me;
And when I see Him face to face,
His grace, my theme shall be.

2 When dark the storm around me rolls,
It cannot hide His face;
Then to the mercy seat I flee
And find sufficient grace. [Refrain]

3 And when the tempter comes, and would
God’s work in me efface,
Then to the Saviour I will go
And find sufficient grace. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ oft I tread some thorny way,
Upon my christian race,
I’m sure that always, day by day,
I’ll find sufficient grace. [Refrain]
