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’ll follow the Lord all the way,
And close to our Shepherd we’ll stay;
How blessed to know as we journey below,
He’s with us by night and by day.

We will follow, ever follow,
In the footsteps of the Savior;
We will follow, ever follow,
In His pathway bright and clear.

2 The sheep of His pasture are one,
Yea, one as the Father and Son;
They’re all of one mind, as their Shepherd designed,
They follow and serve Him alone. [Refrain]

3 There’s joy in the fold of the Lord,
We walk in the light of His word;
We love to obey all the Savior doth say,
Thus living in holy accord. [Refrain]

4 By rivers of peace we are led,
In pastures of love we are fed;
We ever rejoice at the sound of His voice,
Redeemed by the blood He has shed. [Refrain]
