Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Hands to work and feet to run,
God's good gifts to me and you;
hands and feet he gave to us
to help each other the whole day through.

2 Eyes to see and ears to hear,
God's good gifts to me and you;
eyes and ears he gave to us
to help each other the whole day through.

3 Minds to think and hearts to love,
God's good gifts to me and you;
minds and hearts he gave to us
to help each other the whole day through.
