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,

Tune Information

Incipit: 13534 65351 43221
Key: D Major
Source: Gregorian Chant (arr.)
Copyright: Public Domain


RIPLEY, composed in 1839, comes from the prolific pen of Lowell Mason (PHH 96), the great American promoter and publisher of school, choral, and congregational music. The tune title, assigned later, presumably honors George Ripley (1802-1889), the famous New York literary critic and transcendentalist. RIPLEY is a classically shaped rounded bar form (AABA) in which the third line provides the contrast and climax to the other lines. It is an energetic tune that calls for jubilant singing in parts and, on festive occasions, the use of brass (probably in E-flat major).

--Psalter Hymnal Handbook, 1988
