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.
Harry Plantinga

Hear and Do

Representative Text

1 Hear the word the Saviour speaks;
'T is the hearing ear he seeks;
Do his will, his Word obey;
'T is the safe and happy way.

Hear and do, yes, hear and do;
'T is the Saviour speaks to you;
Listen, listen, and obey,
Love and follow, day by day.

2 First the Saviour loved us all;
He will hear us when we call;
All should love, and trust him, too;
All be swift to "hear and do." [Chorus]

3 Grateful for his loving care,
Lift the voice of praise and prayer;
Praise him for his holy Word,
For the lessons we have heard. [Chorus]
