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,

Your kingdom come, O Father, hear our prayer

Representative Text

1 Your kingdom come! O Father, hear our prayer;
Shine through the clouds that threaten ev'rywhere;
Light from above, our only life and joy,
Show us the hope that nothing can destroy;
Show us the hope that nothing can destroy.

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;
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;
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.
