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 ‘Tis Easter time, glad Easter time,
Let all the joy-bells ring,
Come, tell again the story old,
Of Christ, the risen King.

2 Refrain
All hail glad day, all hail glad day,
For Jesus lives! He lives!
As on that first bright Easter morn,
His joy and peace He gives.

3 Let children sing with happy hearts,
For Jesus loves their song,
They too may praise the risen Lord
With all the joyful throng.

4 The story old is ever new,
We tell it o’er and o’er,
And each returning Easter day,
We love it more and more.
