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 great world was weary and turned from the light;
The sinful were tired of sinning and slept;
But shepherds above with their flocks by night,
And in the same country their faithful watch kept.

2. No welcome for strangers, for baby no room,
Save one little manger upon the cold ground,
As Mary and Joseph drew nigh through the gloom,
And in the same country a resting place found.

3. Above the dark hilltops there shone a bright star,
As Bethlehem woke to its first Christmas morn;
And songs of great joy filled the heavens afar,
For in the same country child Jesus was born.

4. O hearts that are heavy, O sad and forlorn,
O poor feet that falter and halt by the way,
Rejoice! Unto mankind a Savior is born—
This is the same country, ’tis Christmas today.
