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.

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]
