Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Dunn, Valerie Margery. (Temple City, California, January 18, 1932- ). Presbyterian. While assistant editor of the Presbyterian Record (Toronto) (1961-1978), she became connected with Teen and Twenty Chapel, a group of writers and artists interested in contemporary worship, and supervised production of the collection they issued, Let the Cosmos Ring: Songs for a Century of Peace and Tumult (1968). Some of her lyrics were also published in the Record and in Praise Ways (1975); later she provided the words for an audience-participation musical, Noögenesis (1980). --Hugh McKellar, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
