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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Be a messenger for Jesus,
Speaking words that cheer and bless,
In the name of Him who pities
Hunger, weakness, and distress.

Be a messenger for Jesus,
Utter words of hope divine;
Be a messenger for Jesus,
And rich blessing shall be thine.

2 To the toil worn and the weary,
Weighted with a load of care,
Say the loving Master bids them
In His holy rest to share. [Refrain]

3 To the weak and sorely tempted,
Striving to resist the wrong,
Speak the helpful words of Jesus,
That thro’ faith they may be strong. [Refrain]

4 To the sad and heavy hearted,
Round whom dreary shadows be,
Oft repeat the Savior’s promise
Of a joyous life on high. [Refrain]
