We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 “All the world for Jesus,” let the watchword ring;
“All the world for Jesus,” let the children sing;
Send the gospel tidings far across the sea,
Till all nations know him, and from sin are free.

Every voice can do its share, every hand can work;
Every heart can give a pray’r, not a soul need shrink;
“All the world for Jesus,” this our song shall be,
“All the world for Jesus Christ, who lived and died for me.”

2 “All the world for Jesus,” this shall be our song;
“All the world for Jesus,” what a tribute strong!
Spread the Savior’s message over all the world,
Spread the gospel banner, everywhere unfurled. [Refrain]

3 “All the world for Jesus,” every voice shall sing,
“All the world for Jesus,” universal King;
What a day of gladness that will truly be,
When our whole creation at his throne we see. [Refrain]
