Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

The hearts which thou hast made,
Which thou hast bought with love divine,
To ask thy promised aid.
