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.

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,

Full Text

1 I would be a messenger of Christ, my King,
Precious words of promise I would ever bring;
To the sad and lonely ones who never heard,
I would gladly carry His own precious word.

Only just a messenger of Christ, my King,
Marching onward willingly, I gladly sing;
Only just a messenger with tidings sweet,
Pressing forward steadily and swift of feet.

2 I would be a messenger of Jesus’ choice,
Ringing out His promise with a vibrant voice;
Singing of His love and care, that all may hear,
Anthems sweet of Jesus Christ, my friend so dear. [Refrain]

3 We should all be messengers and not refuse
Those who never yet have heard the joyful news;
We must tell of Jesus’ love to souls in need,
Scatter in the hearts of men the gospel seed. [Refrain]
