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 We are a band of happy, happy children,
Singing all day long,
Praising the name of the blessed Redeemer,
With our happy song.

Singing all day long,
Praise the Savior’s name!
We are a band of happy, happy children,
Singing all day long.

2 Come, let us sing with merry, merry voices,
Of the Savior’s love;
He is preparing a place for His children
In His home above. [Refrain]

3 May we all sing around the throne in glory,
With the angel throng;
Joining our voices in telling the story,
Singing the new song. [Refrain]
