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 Going forth at Christ’s command,
Going forth to ev’ry land;
Full salvation making known,
Thro’ the blood of God’s dear Son.

“Saved to serve!” the watchwords ring,
Saved to serve our glorious King;
Tell the story o’er and o’er,
Saved to serve for evermore.

2 Serving God through all our days,
Toiling not for purse or praise;
But to magnify His name,
While the Gospel we proclaim. [Refrain]

3 Seeking only souls to win
From the deadly pow’r of sin;
We would guide their steps aright,
Out of darkness into light. [Refrain]
