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.

Representative Text

1 Hark! from the throne of light the summons rings,
“Follow Me, my children!
I have work for you, there is much to do,
Before the day is won!”

Songs of love and adoration,
Hymns of praise and exaltation,
Round the world in sweet accord now ring;
Ev’ry eye with fervor lighted,
Ev’ry heart in faith united,
Thus we rise and gladly follow Christ our King.

2 Hark! in the inmost heart the call is heard,
“Follow Me, my children!
In my strength abide, I will be your guide,
The prize will soon be won!” [Refrain]

3 Hark! from a thousand lips the answer rings,
“Lord, we hear, we follow!
For with thee beside as our Friend and Guide,
The day will soon be won!” [Refrain]
