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,

Representative Text

1 Thy kingdom come! O Father, hear our prayer;
Shine through the clouds that darken everywhere;
Thou only light, thou only life and joy,
Show us the hope that nothing can destroy.

2 Stumbling and blind, we strive to do thy will,
Trusting the word thou surely wilt fulfill,
That men are thine, however far they roam,
That love shall triumph, and thy kingdom come. A-men.

3 Come, through the faith whereby the Church must live;
Come, through the word of truth she has to give;
Come, through her teaching, and her healing, too;
Come, through the work united hearts can do.

4 Thy kingdom come, and come thy glorious Son;
O may our task for him be nobly done!
Faithful and true let all thy servants be,
Till they shall bring all nations home to thee.
