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, 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 Go ye, serve your Lord,
Wheresoe’er He leads you,
For the Master needs you;
Go ye, heed His word,
Hearken to the kingly call.

In the ranks there is room,
For the helpers tried and true;
And the Kind, and the King,
Has a task that none but you can do.
In the ranks there is room,
And your strength He will renew;
Then obey His call, ‘mid His helpers all,
There’s room for you.

2 Go ye, in His name,
Dreary skies to brighten,
Heavy loads to lighten;
Go ye, joy proclaim,
Hearken to the kingly call. [Refrain]

3 Go ye, tell His love,
Tell of Him who sought you,
Who from wand’ring brought you;
Praise ye God above,
Hearken to the kingly call. [Refrain]
