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.

Representative Text

1 Where shall we look for help in affliction?
Or whither shall we send?
“The prayer of faith will save,” it is written,
’Tis truth till time shall end.

Refrain:
I touch the word of His promise,

2 Thy love, O God, abideth forever,
Thy mighty pow’r the same;
And all Thy word declares Thou art willing
To heal the sick and lame. [Refrain]

3 Thy heart, dear Lord, is full of compassion,
And touched with sympathy;
Why then should I continue to suffer?
I know Thou healest me. [Refrain]

4 O Christ, Thou art my perfect Physician,
Thy faith now makes me whole;
Thy healing touch pervadeth my body,
And thrills with joy my soul. [Refrain]
