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 What offering shall I bring to Thee,
Immanuel, my King and God,
Who didst vouchsafe a man to be
To save me by Thy precious blood,
Thou, at Whose birth the angels sing,
“Peace upon earth, goodwill to men,”
To whom the sages humbly bring
Their gifts, though Thou appear so mean?

2 This will I do, Thou Child Divine,
I’ll give Thee that for which Thou cam’st;
My soul and body, Lord, are Thine,
And them in love to me Thou claim’st:
My humble sacrifice receive,
Dear Jesus, born to bleed for me,
That I by faith in Thee might live,
And with Thee live eternally.
