Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 “Follow me!” rings out to the world today,
In a clear, commanding tone;
For the Lord our King, and the cause we love,
There is work that must be done.
He is passing by, and he calls again,
As he called in days of old;
O arise, and go! he will lead the way,
And your mission will unfold.

Follow on where he may lead you,
Tho’ you may not understand
What his will may be, or his need of thee,
Yet be loyal to his command.

2 Tho’ it be to fields that are far away,
He should call you to repair;
Falter not, but go! let his will be thine,
Ready be the cross to bear.
Let your faith increase as the days go by,
Tho’ you walk thro’ valleys dim;
Jesus goes before you to guard and guide,
Follow on, and trust in him. [Refrain]

3 There’s a task for you, and a work for me,
That no other hands can do;
Shall we prove to him who has called us forth,
Idle servants, and untrue?
His command is giv’n,—we have heard the call,
And our labors shall not cease,
Till with victory we are crowned at last
By the conq’ring Prince of Peace. [Refrain]
