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,

1 Christian workers, hear again the Master's patient call,
Go ye forth and labor while 'tis day;
Work and sing together, till the evening shadows fall,
Pray for those who perish far away.

Chorus:
Won't you pray, Won't you pray,
For some loved one lost in sin's dark way?
Won't you pray, Won't you pray,
For some dear one who has gone astray.

2 Christian workers, onward now and haste the lost to save,
Seek them on the mountain wild and cold;
Bring them out of bondage, from the dark abodes of sin,
Lead them to the Shepherd and the fold. [Chorus]

3 Christian workers, weary not, your labors will be blest,
Lift the royal standard while you may;
Tell the heavy laden that in Jesus there is rest,
Bear the gospel tidings far away. [Chorus]
