Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.
1 By Galilee of long ago
The Master walked on day,
He called to men whose hearts were brave
To follow in his way.
They answered firm with loyal pledge,
"Yes, Lord, we will obey."
2 Jesus still calls to us today,
He asks for faithful hands
That in his service will obey,
And follow God's commands.
Let strong souls answer as did they
On Galilean sands.
3 I hear his call within my heart,
I'm glad he's chosen me
To walk with him and share his work
As did those by the sea;
I'll join with all who, loving him,
Would kigndom builders be.
