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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Have you sought them, have you sought them?
Who are wayward and weary, wand’ring from home?
Have you brought them, have you brought them,
To the Saviour who bids them come?

Refrain:
O delay not, but seek to bring,
Other souls to own His sway,
Heed His call, His word obey;
O delay not, but for the King
Strive to garner precious sheaves today.
O delay not, but seek to bring
Other souls to own His sway;
Heed His call, His word obey,
Tell the story and let your light so shine,
Leading to your Lord divine.

2 Have you told them, have you told them,
Of a love everlasting, changeless and true?
Ye behold them, ye behold them,
Who are waiting a word from you. [Refrain]

3 Are you giving, are you giving,
Of the blessings that crown you, blessings divine?
Are you living, are you living,
So your light as a lamp shall shine? [Refrain]
