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.

Representative Text

1 Be a loving helper ev’rywhere you go,
Helping readily, helping readily;
Bearing heaven’s sunshine, face and heart aglow,
Whatsoever winds may blow.

Go, go, with a willing heart,
Some sweet joy impart,
Go, go, let love brighten each hour;
God will give you wisdom and pow’r;
Helping ev’rywhere that you go,
As the Saviour did in His life below,
Go, go, go.

2 Be a loving helper in a world of need,
Helping readily, helping readily;
In His happy service, let the Master lead,
Prompting ev’ry word and deed. [Refrain]

3 Be a loving helper, reach a kindly hand,
Helping readily, helping readily;
Cheer a lonely neighbor who may near you stand,
Learn the Master’s “new” command. [Refrain]
