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.

Representative Text

1 The promised day is dawning,
With slow and steady light;
God’s holy word is spreading
O’er climes of darkest night;
Yet, from those distant regions,
We hear the plaintive cry
For Bible truths, so teach them
From sin and death to fly.

2 Our mission fields progressing,
With grateful hearts we view;
Great things have been accomplished,
But much remains to do;
We need more Christian workers,
The cross of Christ to bear;
And who, we ask, are willing
The toil with us to share?

3 Remember, O remember
The Saviour’s last command,
Go forth and preach the gospel,
Go forth to every land;
Believe and trust the promise,
And on its truth depend;
Lo, I am with you alway,
Yes, with you to the end.
