We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Notes: The melody and text of this setting are bold and brash. St. 1 can be seen as a call to sing. Particularly when this surprising text and melody are new to a congregation, the first stanza is best sung by a solo voice or an ensemble, with the entire congregation responding in singing sts. 2 and 3. The stanzas are dense with text and imagery. Take care that they are not sung too quickly.
