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,
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1. Thy Word, O Lord to us is sweet,
A lamp to guide our wayward feet,
And light the way that leads to God,
By weary ones so often trod.
When shadows fall, and life seems drear,
When darkest gloom surrounds us here,
Be Thou our guide, be Thou our stay,
And lead us in the narrow way,
The blessèd way.

2. O Jesus, Lord, teach us to pray;
Help us to serve Thee day by day;
And by Thy Book of truth divine,
May we be pure and wholly Thine;
O light of life, O light of love,
The Spirit’s gift, sent from above,
We’ll follow where Thou leadst the way,
And safely reach the realms of day,
The glorious day.
