Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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. God Calls Us to Worship

God calls us to worship with glorious sounds
of music declaring that here love is found;
in songs of the faithful and tunes that we play,
God's presence is made known among us today.
Refrain:
Sing praise that, in music, God gives us a voice,
and calls us to worship, give thanks, and rejoice!

Sing praise for the music that's chosen with care
that we may express our deep feelings in prayer,
for psalms, hymns, and anthems that help us move on
from tears of lament to a joyful new song.
Refrain:
Sing praise now for music that gives us a voice
to tell of God's goodness, give thanks, and rejoice.

Sing praise for directors who work hard and long
to help us discover our own gifts for song,
who nurture and teach us and set us afire
to sing from the pew or a place in the choir.
Refrain:
Sing praise now for music that gives us a voice
to tell of God's goodness, give thanks, and rejoice.

Sing praise for musicians who walk at our side,
our friends and companions, who ever provide
new reasons to sing and to offer our praise,
and lead us in serving God, now and always.
Refrain:
Sing praise now for music that gives us a voice
to tell of God's goodness, give thanks, and rejoice.
