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.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

With joy we tread

Representative Text

1 With joy Thine earthly courts we tread,
And here we worship Thee,
Who left the regions of the dead
For immortality;
Our thankful voices here we raise
To Him who reigns above;
We bring the tribute of our praise
For Thy redeeming love.

2 To Thee, O Lord, we join in prayer,
To Thee we raise our song;
We hear the precepts of Thy word,
Where all Thy people throng;
In the dear name of Christ our King,
We to the Father pray;
Contrite and broken hearts we bring,
On this most holy day.

3 Lord, meet us in this holy place,
Thy dwelling here below;
Refresh us with Thy richest grace,
And set our hearts aglow—
Aglow with sweet and fervent love
For all Thy goodness shown;
And raise us from this lower world
To Thy celestial throne.
