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

49. The Redemption Story

1 Tell me, pilgrim, trav’ling homeward,
Are you holy, free from sin?
Are you flashing light around you?
Are you witnessing for Him?

Refrain:
Yes! Yes! Yes!
It fills my heart with glory
To tell the hungry, thirsting soul
Of the redemption story.

2 Have you made a consecration
Of yourself and earthly store?
Have you died to all but Jesus
And His will forevermore? [Refrain]

3 Do you love to read the Bible—
Feel the Spirit’s holy fire?
Do you measure to its standard?
Does each duty you inspire? [Refrain]

4 Do you gladly tell the story
Of the Savior’s wondrous love?
How He fills the soul with glory
Pure as heaven’s light above? [Refrain]

5 Are you seeking out the needy?
Leading sinners to the blood?
Thus, O pilgrim, should we ever
Live and work alone for God. [Refrain]
