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. Gathered are we in the name of our God,
Lord, give us souls, Lord, give us souls;
Trusting His grace and His wonderful Word,
Lord, give us souls, we pray.

Refrain
Seals to our labor, and souls for our hire,
This blessèd Lord, is our one great desire;
Souls for whom Jesus His precious life gave,
Lord, give us souls, we pray.

2. Loved ones are lost, and our friends are astray,
Lord, give us souls, Lord, give us souls;
Help us to win them while yet it is day,
Lord, give us souls, we pray. [Refrain]

3. Come, Holy Ghost, on Thy people descend,
Lord, give us souls, Lord, give us souls;
Make our hearts holy, Thy kingdom extend,
Lord, give us souls, we pray. [Refrain]

4. Harvest is passing, yes, soon ’twill be gone,
Lord, give us souls, Lord, give us souls;
Bring us at last to our heavenly home,
Lord, give us souls, we pray. [Refrain]
