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, 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

We love to sing together

Full Text

1 We love to sing together,
We love to sing together,
Our hearts and voices one;
To praise our heavenly Father,
To praise our heavenly Father,
And His eternal Son.

We love to sing, we love to sing,
We love to sing together;
We love to sing, we love to sing,
We love to sing together.

2 We love to sing together,
We love to sing together,
To Jesus on His throne,
And ask that He will ever,
And ask that He will ever
Accept us as His own. [Refrain]

3 We love to sing together,
We love to sing together
The word of saving truth,
Whose light is shining ever,
Whose light is shining ever
To guide our early youth. [Refrain]
