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 Is it nothing to you that a sin-sick world
Is lying in darkness and night,
And with never a bright cheering beam to shine
With glorious gospel light?
Is it nothing to you that the millions there
Go down to a Christless grave,
And with not a word of the loving Lord,
Who suffered, their souls to save?

Refrain:
Is it nothing to you?
Is it nothing to you?
That the harvest is great and the reapers are few?
O hasten to tell thro’ the world so wide
The love of the crucified.

2 Is it nothing to you that the starving souls
Are pleading for life-giving bread,
And are you, with abundance beyond your need,
Still letting them go unfed?
Is it nothing to you that they wait athirst
For water of life so free,
And you quench your thirst in the cooling stream,
While they die in misery? [Refrain]

3 Is it nothing to you that they groan and wail,
In anguish and sorrow and pain?
Shall the Saviour who died on the cruel cross
Have given his life in vain?
Is it nothing to you that the last command
Of him whose dear name you bear
Was to preach the gospel to all the lands,
Proclaiming it ev’rywhere? [Refrain]
