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. [Ĉiuj:]
Fuĝi for, fuĝi for, fuĝi al Jesuo!
Fuĝi for, hejmen jam — ne longe plu mi restos!

[Solkantisto:]
Jen Di' min vokas, per tondro min Di' vokas!
Trumpeto sonas en la anim'!
[Ĉiuj:]
Ne longe plu mi restos!

2. [Ĉiuj:]
Fuĝi for, fuĝi for, fuĝi al Jesuo!
Fuĝi for, hejmen jam — ne longe plu mi restos!

[Solkantisto:]
Fleksiĝas arboj, pekulo povra tremas!
Trumpeto sonas en la anim'!
[Ĉiuj:]
Ne longe plu mi restos!

3. [Ĉiuj:]
Fuĝi for, fuĝi for, fuĝi al Jesuo!
Fuĝi for, hejmen jam — ne longe plu mi restos!

[Solkantisto:]
La tomboj krevas, pekulo povra tremas!
Trumpeto sonas en la anim'!
[Ĉiuj:]
Ne longe plu mi restos!

4. [Ĉiuj:]
Fuĝi for, fuĝi for, fuĝi al Jesuo!
Fuĝi for, hejmen jam — ne longe plu mi restos!

[Solkantisto:]
Jen Di' min vokas, per fulmo min Di' vokas!
Trumpeto sonas en la anim'!
[Ĉiuj:]
Ne longe plu mi restos!
