We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

1 We’ll see our elders’ glory;
But the angels seem to tarry,
And the saints of God rejoicing
In the kingdom of our Lord.

Chorus:
Our lamps are burning, our lamps are burning,
Our lamps are burning, our lamps are filled with oil.

2 We’ll see our leaders’ glory;
But the angels seem to tarry,
And the saints of God rejoicing
In the kingdom of our Lord. [Chorus]

3 We’ll see the Church's glory;
But the angels seem to tarry,
And the saints of God rejoicing
In the kingdom of our Lord. [Chorus]
