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

44. Are You Helping Somewhere?

1 Are you helping somewhere in the world of woe,
That its heavy burdens may the lighter grow?
Is your life a blessing wheresoe’er you go?
Love and help are needed ev’rywhere.

Love and help are needed ev’rywhere,
In the homes of sorrow, in the homes of care;
Are some hearts the happier for your living here below?
Do you scatter sunshine wheresoe’er you go?

2 Are you helping somewhere in the world of care?
Do you with your brother pain and sorrow share?
You will find your burdens lighter far to bear,
While you’re helping others anywhere. [Refrain]

3 Are you helping somewhere in the world of sin?
Do you seek the erring feet to gather in?
You may precious treasures for the Master win
By your faithful service ev’rywhere. [Refrain]
