Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Shine through the clouds that threaten ev'rywhere;
Light from above, our only life and joy,

2 Stumbling and blind, we strive to do your will,
Trusting the word you surely will fulfill,
That all are yours, however far they roam,
That love shall triumph, and your kingdom come;

3 Come through the faith whereby the Church must live;
Come through the Word and Sacraments you give;
Come through your teaching, and your healing too;
Come through the work enlightened hearts can do;

4 Your kingdom come; come too, God's glorious Son!
Oh, may our task for you be nobly done!
Faithful let all your servants be, and true,
Until they bring all nations home to you;
Until they bring all nations home to you.
