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.

With our banners lifted high;
We are coming, we are coming,
Jesus calls, and we reply: [Refrain]
