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.

1 What sound is this?
A song through heaven resounding,
God is love!
And now from earth
I hear the notes rebounding,
God is love!
Yes, while adoring hosts proclaim,
Love is his nature, love his name,
My heart with rapture cries the same,
That God is love!

2 This song repeat,
Repeat, ye saints in glory
God is love!
And saints on earth,
Shout back the pleasing story,
God is love!
In this let earth and heaven agree,
To sound his love, so full and free;
And let the theme forever be,
That God is love!
