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,

11. He Calleth His Sheep

1 O Jesus, our Shepherd, how sweet is thy voice,
Its gentle tones we know;
And in thy dear presence we always rejoice,
Wherever thou leadest we go.

Chorus:
Jesus now is calling, calling, calling,
Jesus now is calling you and me;
Where the Shepherd leadeth, leadeth, leadeth,
Gladly we will follow, we'll follow thee.

2 In pastures of plenty his flock ever feeds,
And there our souls find rest;
To wells of salvation he daily leads,
Where waters are calm and so blest! [Chorus]

3 O blessed assurance, he knoweth his sheep,
And he his own will claim;
His flock from the snares of the foe he will keep,
For he calleth them all by name. [Chorus]

4 O Jesus, our Shepherd, so kind and so good,
For us thy life to give;
And save us from sin by thine own precious blood,
That henceforth for thee we may live [Chorus]
