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 Beloved of Jesus, go forth and God speed thee!
Be swift in His name till the end of the days!
Let Christ, the great leader, omnipotent lead thee—
His kingdom thy boast, and His glory thy praise!

Refrain:
Arise and be doing! Above and around thee,
The ranks of the ransomed in panoply teem;
Be valiant in service, for Jesus hath crowned thee,
A servant of many, to save and redeem.

2 To action! delay not! thy mission, salvation;
The grace of thy going each gateway unbars;
Win souls for the day of the King’s coronation;
The ones who turn many shall shine as the stars. [Refrain]

3 O, haste thee, nor tarry! stay not for the morrow!
Jehovah, our God, thy defense and thy might;
Bear light into darkness, and joy unto sorrow;
Be firm and be fearless, for God and the right. [Refrain]

4 O, faint not, nor falter, tho’ burdens oppress thee;
Thy buckler and shield the immaculate word;
His power and the spirit of conquest possess thee,
Thy war cry and watchword—
The world for the Lord. [Refrain]
