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 Hymnary.org, 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,
Harry Plantinga

5. Our God, You Called to Moses

Our God, you called to Moses to set your people free.
What wrongly some suppose is: He answered easily.
“I’m not the one you’re seeking!” he seemed instead to say.
“My strength is not in speaking; God, find another way!”

And yet, O Lord, you told him to trust in what you said.
Your strength would surely hold him through every day ahead.
Though many would oppose him, by your own name he’d know:
You were the one who chose him to help your people go.

You call each congregation to serve the lost and poor.
We doubt our own vocation; we ask, “Lord, are you sure?”
Yet you give gifts for sharing, you show us what to say.
Your Spirit gives us daring to serve Christ every day.
