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.

Representative Text

1 Hark the Savior’s welcome summons,
As he stands by Galilee,
Calling to those weary toilers,
Leave your nets and follow me.
Follow, follow,
Leave your nets and follow, follow, follow me,
Follow, follow me.

2 Now to us these words are given,
Rebel sinners though we be,
Ever this command they bring us,
Leave your sins and follow me.
Follow, follow,
Leave your sins and follow, follow, follow me,
Follow, follow me.

3 Listen then, when sad and weary,
And no ray of light you see,
To the gentle words of Jesus,
Faint not, fear not, follow me.
Follow, follow,
Faint not, fear not, follow, follow, follow me,
Follow, follow me.

4 Thus the Savior’s calling every,
Ever calling you and me,
May we now resolve to heed and
Try, dear Lord, to follow thee,
Follow, follow,
May we try to follow, follow, follow me,
Follow, follow me.
