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 forward! is the challenge word the Master gives today;
This is the time for courage, and boldness is the way!
A life of service now awaits; the Master sends us all;
Who volunteers his life, his all, as answer to the call?

We go, in this new era day, nor fear the foe!
Go forward! is the watchword of the King whom we obey!
No fear, no pow’r, nor thing, nor space
Can separate us from our King till coronation day.

2 O hear the Master calling still for volunteers today;
He pleads for lives of service! who will His call obey?
The road is steep, and rugged, too, the battle long and hard;
Who volunteers to go today, if but the Captain’s guard? [Refrain]

3 To him that overcometh, Christ the King shall give a crown;
On him that shall prove faithful heav’n’s blessings shower down.
To him who bears the burden thro’ the burning midday sun,
To him shall come, in judgment day, the blessed words, “Well done!” [Refrain]
