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

23. Do Something for Somebody

1 The world is bowed down by its toiling and care,
And many have burdens to bear;
Then hasten the load of another to share,
As Jesus has done for you.

Refrain:
Do something for somebody, somewhere today,
Be kind, loving, faithful and true,
Do something for somebody, somewhere today,
As Jesus has done for you.

2 Lost multitudes stray in the desert of sin,
The Saviour is calling them in,
Go, tell of His love and the wanderers win,
As Jesus has done for you. [Refrain]

3 So many are wounded by sorrow’s keen dart,
Dark shadows beclouding the heart;
O go to them quickly, and comfort impart,
As Jesus has done for you. [Refrain]

4 Yes, some one is always in trial or need,
And troubles for sympathy plead;
O prove your compassion by word and by deed,
As Jesus has done for you. [Refrain]
