Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

431. Hark, the Voice of Jesus Calling

1 Hark, the voice of Jesus calling,
"Who will go and work today?
Fields are white and harvests waiting;
who will bear the sheaves away?"
Loud and long the Master calleth;
rich reward he offers free;
who will answer gladly, saying,
"Here am I; my Lord, send me"?

2 If you cannot be the watchman
standing high on Zion's wall,
pointing out the path to heaven;
off'ring life and peace to all,
if you cannot speak like angels,
if you cannot preach like Paul,
your can tell the love of Jesus,
you can say, "He died for all."

3 Let none hear you idly saying,
"There is nothing I can do,"
while a human soul is dying,
and the Master calls for you;
take the task he gives you gladly;
let his work your pleasure be;
answer quickly when he calleth,
"Here am I; my Lord, send me."
