Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Representative Text

1 Into the world with a mission,
Kept by His bountiful care,
God the kind Father has sent us,
Tidings of Jesus to bear.

Refrain:
Help us to know Thee, dear Savior,
Simple and pure as Thou art;
Then in the spirit of meekness
May we Thy love-light impart.

2 Happy of heart is the Christian,
Cheered by a presence divine;
Jesus beside him is walking,
Giving him power to shine. [Refrain]

3 Gloomy and dark are the shadows,
Where sin and sorrow abound;
Jesus would have His disciples
Spreading His sunshine around. [Refrain]

4 This, then, shall be our endeavor,
Loyal disciples to be;
Lighting the darkness for Jesus,
Shining, dear Savior, for Thee. [Refrain]
