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 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 There is peace only in His name,
Only in the name of Jesus;
And that peace, wretched souls may claim,
Only in the name of Jesus!

Refrain:
Name of Jesus, Name of Jesus!
When you pray, O pray in His name,
Go to God with every care;
Tell it to Him in your pray’r,
Only in the name of Jesus.

2 There is strength only in His name,
Only in the name of Jesus;
And man can his wild passions tame,
Only in the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Tell to God, what your sins have been,
Only in the name of Jesus;
He can make you all pure within,
Only in the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Tell to God what your weakness is,
Only in the name of Jesus.
He is strong, and to help is His,
Only in the name of Jesus. [Refrain]
