Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Rest, joyful rest, over Jordan

Author: George A. C. Wiggins

George wrote many hymns for the Salvation Army between 1880 and 1900. He attended the 25th anniversary of the Salvation Army in London and played the piano for that gathering held in the Crystal Palace. The Salvation Army Heritage centre in Toronto, Canada has copies of his hymns and the International Salvation Army headquarters in London, England also has some of his hymns.
