Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 The Lord love thee
And keep thee
Upon the land and sea;
And cause His face
In ev’ry place
To shine divine on thee.

2 The Lord bless thee
And rest thee,
Where’er thy journeys be;
And never cease
To give His peace
By day and night to thee.

3 The Lord guide thee
And bring thee
To where the home-shores be;
And ev’ry hour
In joyous pow’r
His blessings lay on thee.
