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 Go tell the wonderful story today,
Tell it today, do not delay,
Gladden some heart on its sorrowing way,
Go tell the story today.

Refrain:
Go tell the news where the weary may be,
Go and the sorrowing captive set free,
Go tell of Jesus who saves you and me,
Go tell the story today.

2 Go tell the story what Jesus has done,
Tell it today, do not delay—
Praises to God for the gift of His Son,
Go tell the story today. [Refrain]

3 Go tell the weary who struggled with sin,
Tell it today, do not delay—
Speak to them gently and gather them in,
Go tell the story today. [Refrain]
