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.

Representative Text

1 We meet once more with hearts aflame,
To praise the blessed Saviour’s name,
And while we praise,
This pray’r we’ll raise,
God bless our Sunday School.

God bless our school, our Sunday school,
‘Tis here we learn the golden rule,
Fill us with love
And from above,
God bless our Sunday School.

2 ‘Tis here we come to learn of Thee,
Unclose our eyes that we may see,
Unto each heart
Thy grace impart,
God bless our Sunday School. [Refrain]

3 Be in the lesson of today,
And help each teacher, Lord, we pray,
And while they teach,
Still we beseech,
Lord bless our Sunday School. [Refrain]

4 Now help the children while they sing
The praises of their Lord and King,
May they to Thee
United be,
Lord bless our Sunday School. [Refrain]

5 Be with each heart, be with each home,
Be with us in the years to come,
While still to Thee,
Our pray’r will be,
God bless our Sunday School. [Refrain]
