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

Notes

The Psalter Hymnal Revision Committee announced a tune search for this text; HOSEA, composed by Norm Jonkman (b. Paterson, NJ, 1944) in 1984, was selected from among several tunes submitted. HOSEA is a rounded bar form tune (AABA') in a minor tonality. It has characteristics similar to Appalachian tunes of the southeastern United States. HOSEA can be sung by a children's choir, a soloist, or in unison with rather light accompaniment over a sustained pedal line. Jonkman studied music education at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan, and taught music at Whitinsville (MA) Christian School and Eastern Christian School in Paterson, New Jersey. Since 1975 he has been an electronic organ technician for the McIntyre Organ Service in Seattle, Washington. He has composed several pieces, including a Mass for choir and orchestra in 1995, which he dedicated to the choir he directs at Overlake Park Presbyterian Church in Bellevue, Washington. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook, 1988
