Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

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]
