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

1 From the nets of our labors,
through the noise and confusion,
from the city or seashore,
Jesus summons us all.

We will rise up and follow,
Christ before and beside us,
loving pattern to guide us,
as we answer the call.

2 When we faint and grow weary
from the bearing of burdens,
with a message of comfort,
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]

3 In the eyes of the stranger—
tearful, joyous, or frightened—
in the face of each neighbor,
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]

4 When we hear words of hatred
spreading fear or false witness,
words that cry to be challenged,
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]

5 In each moment of courage,
steadfast even through trembling;
in the yearning for justice,
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]

6 Like disciples before us,
from the city or seashore,
risking selfless compassion:
Jesus summons us all. [Refrain]
