We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

The old year dies

Representative Text

1. The old year dies, the new is born;
Grant, Lord, in us as well,
The old and sinful self may die,
The new thy praises swell.

2. The glad New Year that dawns for us,
Our Lord's return may see,
When all the ransomed Church with him
For evermore shall be.

3. O blessed Son of God Most High,
The God whom we adore,
Be honor, praise and glory given,
Both now and evermore.

4. To Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
The God whom we adore,
Be honor, praise and glory given,
Both now and evermore.
