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. Wouldst thou find a friend to love thee
More than human hearts can love,
One who knows thy every trial?
Such a friend thou hast above.

Refrain
Go, in trusting faith believing,
Cast thy burden on the Lord,
He has promised to receive thee—
Take thy Savior at His word.

2. Wouldst thou find the blessèd fountain,
Flowing at the cross so free?
Go to Jesus; He will guide thee;
Cleansed by Him thy soul shall be. [Refrain]

3. Wouldst thou find a friend to teach thee
How thy soul by faith may live,
How to reach those heights of rapture
Earthly joy can never give? [Refrain]

4. Wouldst thou find a friend to shield thee
When with clouds thy sky is dim?
Go to Jesus; ask His mercy;
Lo, He calls thee, go to Him. [Refrain]
