Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 To worship in Thy temple, Lord,
We come, we come;
To learn more of thy holy word,
We come, we come;
And while we gather here today,
O meet with us we pray.

Refrain:
We come to learn of Thee,
Thy follow’rs e’er to be,
O may we strive to be,
Dear Saviour more like Thee;
We come to learn of Thee,
Thy follow’rs e’er to be,
O may we e’er be faithful ‘til Thy face we see.

2 To sing sweet songs of love and praise,
We come, we come;
To Him who fills with joy our days,
We come, we come;
Then all united let us sing,
And make His temple ring. [Refrain]

3 To tell the story of His love,
We come, we come;
To praise His name who reigns above,
We come, we come;
Then let us sound the gospel call,
And “crown Him Lord of all.” [Refrain]
