We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Go forth, ye heralds of the cross,
Prepare the highway of the Lord;
His cause must never suffer loss,
Go forth! proclaim His gracious Word!

We have a glorious work to do,
Let each one with the dawn begin;
And as we sow God sends the dew,
At last the sheaves are gathered in.

2 Arise with morning’s early dawn!
And as the sun ascends the sky,
With ceaseless step your way pursue,
Improve the moments as they fly. [Chorus]

3 A golden harvest lies in view,
And there’s abundant work for all;
Behold! the harvesters are few,
O who will answer to the call? [Chorus]
