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 Tremblingly, as once of old,
Esther, in the royal court,
For a people captive sold,
Mercy and deliverance sought.

2 So I come, my king, to Thee,
Trembling at Thy feet I fall;
Stretch Thy scepter over me,
Let me hear Thy gracious call.

3 I have naught to offer Thee,
Naught to plead in sin’s defense,
Yet unto Thy courts I flee;
Jesus, do not drive me thence.

4 Thou hast crowned me with Thy love,
Summoned me Thy name to bear;
Bending from Thy throne above,
King of Heaven, hear my prayer.

5 King of grace and love untold,
Come and feast with me today,
Not as Esther’s king of old,
But forevermore to stay.
