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.

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."
