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

1. All the world for Jesus!
Be this our earnest aim;
To spread the blessèd tidings
Of Him who once was slain.

Refrain
All the world for Jesus,
Let ev’ry creature sing;
All the world for Jesus,
Our great eternal King.

2. All the world for Jesus!
Let each one pray and give,
Until remotest nations
Shall look to Him and live. [Refrain]

3. All the world for Jesus!
We’ll give, at His behest,
To raise the poor and helpless,
Till all have Christ confessed. [Refrain]

4. All the world for Jesus!
And Jesus for the world!
Forever be His banner
Of victory unfurled. [Refrain]
