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. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Representative Text

1. Weary child, thy sin forsaking,
Close thy heart no more;
From thy dream of pleasure waking,
Open wide the door.

Refrain
While the lamp of life is burning,
And the heart of God is yearning,
To His loving arms returning,
Give thy wand’ring o’er.

2. To the Savior’s tender pleading,
Close thy heart no more;
Now the call of mercy heeding
Open wide the door. [Refrain]

3. To the Gospel invitation
Close thy heart no more;
To receive a full salvation
Open wide the door. [Refrain]

4. To the joy that fadeth never
Close thy heart no more;
To the peace abiding ever
Open wide the door. [Refrain]
