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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

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.
