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 tasted of salvation?
Pass the word along!
Send it forth to ev’ry nation,
Pass the word along!
Many souls that now are dying,
For the word of life are sighing,
On the pow’r of God relying,
Pass the word along!

Pass the word along!
Pass the word along!
Spread the message of salvation,
Pass the word along!

2 Have you found the Lord most precious?
Pass the word along!
Others, too, will find him gracious,
Pass the word along!
’Tis a message worth the giving–
Tell it far by holy living;
Many souls for life are striving,
Pass the word along! [Refrain]

3 Has your soul in Christ found healing?
Pass the word along!
Forth the joyful news be pealing,
Pass the word along!
Like the seed increased by sowing,
So the truth will go on growing;
Souls, with heav’nly power glowing,
Pass the word along! [Refrain]
