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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Have you heard the voice of Jesus
Whisper, "I have chosen you?"
Does he tell you in communion
What he wishes you to do?

Are you in the inner circle?
Have you heard the Master's call?
Have you giv'n your life to Jesus?
Is he now your All in all?

2 As the first disciples followed,
As they went where'er he sent;
So today we, too, may follow,
On his leading still intent. [Chorus]

3 Or, if he shall choose to send us
On some errand in his name,
We can serve him as disciples,
For our place is just the same. [Chorus]

4 Master, at thy footstool kneeling,
We, thy children, humbly wait;
Lead us, send us, bless us, use us,
Till we enter heaven's gate. [Chorus]
