We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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. 

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. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 There are those we must encourage,
Who are struggling and trying to win;
For we know not their temptations,
Nor the fight they are waging with sin.

Scatter deeds of kindness and love,
It will brighten the pathways above;
Scatter deeds of love along the way
That leads to everlasting day.

2 Is thy brother faint and weary?
Go and help him his burden to bear!
Has he wandered from the pathway?
Go and lead him to Jesus in prayer! [Refrain]

3 Here a loving word of comfort,
There an action of mercy and love;
Scatter sunshine all around you,
And the Lord will reward you above. [Refrain]
