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

873. For Jesus' Sake

1 Will you come and help us in our work,
For Jesus' sake?
Will you fight with enemies that lurk,
For Jesus' sake?
The pow'rs of evil stronger grow,
Within,without, we meet the foe;
Will you lend a hand to strike a blow,
For Jesus' sake?

For Jesus' sake, For Jesus' sake,
What will you do for Jesus' sake?
Let each one bring some worthy thing
For Jesus' sake.

2 Will you make the homes of darkness bright
For Jesus' sake?
Will you be an ever shining light
For Jesus' sake?
Against all forms of deadly sin,
Against all evil thoughts within,
Will you strike as one who means to win,
For Jesus' sake? [Refrain]

3 Will you curb the quick and angry word
For Jesus' sake?
Will you bear the yoke of our dear Lord
For Jesus' sake?
When work is hard and duty dry,
And easy seems the tempting lie,
Will you speak the truth, although you die,
For Jesus' sake? [Refrain]

4 Will you turn from ev'ry evil way
For Jesus' sake?
Will you climb up higher day by day
For Jesus' sake?
Amid the stress of earthly strife,
Amid a world with evil rife,
Will you try to live the higher life,
For Jesus' sake? [Refrain]
