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 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 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

1. We will sing the old, old story,
Though you ask for something new;
’Tis our passport home to glory;
Jesus died for me and you.

Refrain
Yes, we’ll sing the old, old story,
Ever old and ever new,
How the Lord of life and glory
Came to save both me and you.

2. We will sing His grand salvation,
Sing of Christ and Him alone,
’Till in every clime and nation
His belovèd name is known. [Refrain]

3. Yes, we’ll sing the old, old story
O’er and o’er the song repeat,
Till we see the King in glory,
Kneeling at His blessèd feet. [Refrain]
