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 To God, ye choir above, begin
A hymn so loud and strong,
That all the universe may hear,
And join the grateful song.

2 Sing him, ye distant worlds and suns,
From whence no traveling ray
Hath yet to us, through ages past,
Had time to make its way.

3 Whate'er ye are, where'er ye dwell,
Ye creatures great and small,
Adore the wisdom, praise the power,
That made and governs all.

4 From all the boundless realms of space,
Let loud hosannas sound;
Loud send, ye wondrous works of God,
The grateful concert round.
