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,

774. From miles around the sick ones came

1 From miles around the sick ones came,
In hope that One they heard was Lord
would make their souls and bodies well,
with healing touch or saving word.

2 And still they come, new preys of plague,
while often in their rooms of prayer
God’s people worship, safe and sound,
unheeding, even unaware.

3 Recall us to our mission, Lord,
to reach for those cut off, in pain;
to offer friendship, strength, and peace
and be a faithful church again.
