Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

With God essentially the same,
Distinct in personality,
Thou art the absolute I AM,
And all things made were made by Thee.
