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,

610. Living for Jesus

1 Living for Jesus a life that is true,
striving to please him in all that I do;
yielding allegiance, glad-hearted and free,
this is the pathway of blessing for me.

[Refrain:]
O Jesus, Lord and Savior,
I give myself to thee;
for thou, in thy atonement,
didst give thyself for me;
I own no other master,
my heart shall be thy throne;
my life I give, henceforth to live,
O Christ, for thee alone.

2 Living for Jesus who died in my place,
bearing on Calvary my sin and disgrace;
such love constrains me to answer his call,
follow his leading, and give him my all. [Refrain]

3 Living for Jesus through earth's little while,
my dearest treasure--the light of his smile;
seeking the lost ones he died to redeem,
bringing the weary to find rest in him. [Refrain]
