We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Thy people, Lord, of many lands and nations,
In evening praise are met to wait Thy will;
Weak men and women, living by Thy patience—
Be very patient still.

2 Suffer us, yet, O Lord, a little longer;
With all our broken purposes of good—
Suffer us yet, and make our spirits stronger
To serve Thee as we should.

3 Be with us all, dear Lord, guard Thou our sleeping;
If any waken, temper Thou the gloom
Of night’s dark watches quiet in Thy keeping
Until the day shall come.

4 Call us to labor blithely on the morrow,
With morning faces and with morning hearts;
Or if the day that dawns be marked for sorrow,
Nerve us to bear our parts.
