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.

1. To the tomb so chill and lonely,
Friendly hands the Savior bore;
When His foes had crucified Him,
And when they could mock no more,
Then a guard of Roman soldiers
By the spot were made to stay,
Lest, they said, that His disciples
Should His body take away!

Refrain
Mighty Savior! We adore Thee,
We Thy resurrection own;
We will love, and we will serve Thee,
We will make Thy goodness known.

2. Jesus had to His disciples
Clearly His own death foretold;
And that death had power only
For three days His form to hold;
And just when the time was ended,
Lo! new life the Savior found,
And the soldiers all were frightened,
And like dead men fell around. [Refrain]

3. Jesus has in truth arisen,
He was seen to many eyes;
And He lives, our Mediator,
In the heav’nly paradise;
We shall live because He liveth,
We shall see His blessèd face,
Thro’ the flight of endless ages,
Sinners saved by matchless grace. [Refrain]
