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

571. The Gospel Trumpet

1 Blow the gospel trumpet, brother, over land and sea,
Sound the news to all creation, Christ will set you free;
He will break the chains of bondage, let the tidings sound,
He is able, do not doubt Him, let His grace abound.

2 Sing, and pray, and preach for Jesus everywhere you go,
Wake the slumb’ring, sinful nations on the brink of woe;
Tell them of that cleansing fountain flowing deep and wide
From Mount Calv’ry’s sacred summit, from His pierced side.

3 In the Spirit’s holy unction preach the word of God,
Till its melting power brings the lost to Jesus’ blood;
Compass every heathen nation filled with sinful dearth,
Scatter light and truth from heaven over all the earth.

4 Send the gospel proclamation all around the globe,
Freedom, freedom for the captive in his sinful robe;
Search in every hidden corner for the honest ones,
Use the time and work for Jesus till the judgment comes.
