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,

The Lion of Judah

Representative Text

1 'Twas Jesus, my Saviour, who died on the tree
To open a fountain for sinners like me;
His blood is the fountain thath pardon bestows,
And cleanses the foulest wherever it flows.

For the conquering Saviour shall break ev'ry chain,
And give us the vict'ry again and again;
For the conquering Saviour shall break ev'ry chain,
And give us the vict'ry again and again

2 And when I was willing with all things to part,
He gave me my bounty, His love in my heart;
So now I am join'd with the conquering band
Who are marching to glory at Jesus’ command. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ round me the storms of adversity roll,
And the waves of destruction encompass my soul,
In vain this frail vessel the tempest shall toss,
My hopes rest secure on the blood of the Cross. [Refrain]

4 And when with the ransom'd of Jesus, my head,
From fountain to fountain I then shall be led,
I’ll fall at His feet and His mercy adore,
And sing of the blood of the Cross evermore. [Refrain]

5 Come, sinners, to Jesus! no longer delay;
A full free salvation He offers today;
Arouse your dark spirits, awake from your dream,
And Christ will support you in coming to Him. [Refrain]
