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 Tiden svinder,
Tiden rinder,
Tiden flyver hastig bort,
Tag dig vare
I din Fare,
Da bin Time er saa kort!
O du faar jo ei at vide,
Hvor din Død kan staa vaa Lur,
Tænk paa Evighed i Tide,
Om den ei skal vorde sur!

2 Hold dig færdig,
Ren og værdig
Til den store Bryllupsfest,
Til at være
Der i Ære
Jesu Brud og Himmel-Gjest!
Gud indbød dig, se at træπde
Frem for ham med Bøn og Bod,
Tvæt dit synde-smitted Klæde
Hvidt i Lammets røde Blod!
