Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 They build upon the rolling sand,
A tottering house that will not stand,
Who place in works their trust;
And in the dark and stormy day,
Their frail support shall fall away,
And crumble into dust.
2 ‘Tis not by works that we have done,
But thro' our faith in Christ alone,
That we can be secure;
While on this sure foundation laid,
No storm can make the soul afraid,
For its defense is sure.
3 Then let us not with earnest care
A worthless building strive to rear,
And labor thus in vain;
But fix out faith and hope alone
Upon that precious cornerstone
Which ever shall remain.
