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,

Russell, Matthew, s. of Arthur Russell of Killowen, Co. Down, was b. July 13, 1834, at Newry, Co. Down, Ireland. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1857, and is now (1906) at St. Francis Xavier's Church, Dublin.

The best known of his hymns are:— 1. A message from the Sacred Heart. Sacred Heart of Jesus. In St. Patrick's Hymn Book, Dublin, 1890. 2. O Mary, dearest Mother. May.
