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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 O Christians, haste, your mission high fulfilling,
to tell the world that God is one who cares,
that God who made all nations is not willing
one life should perish, lost in deep despair.

Publish glad tidings, tidings of peace,
tidings of Jesus, redemption, and release.

2 Proclaim to every people, tongue, and nation
that God, in whom we live and move, is love.
Tell how God stooped to save a lost creation,
and died on earth that we might live above. [Refrain]

3 Give of your sons to bear the message glorious;
give of your daughters, speed them on their way.
Pour out your soul for them in prayer victorious,
till God shall bring a new and joyful day. [Refrain]
