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. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Representative Text

1 When the Savior had arisen
From the silent grave,
Then He to His loved disciples
This commandment gave:

Refrain:
"Go ye, therefore, teach the nations
Of the risen Son;
Tell them of the great redemption
Sent to everyone."

2 "Tell them of the night of sorrow,
In Gethsemane;
Show to them the weary footprints,
Up to Calvary." [Refrain]

3 "Go and tell them how I loved them,
Even on the tree,
How I thought of them with pity,
In death’s agony." [Refrain]

4 Now to us this message cometh,
From the sinner’s Friend,
With the promise, "I am with you,
Even to the end." [Refrain]
