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

Full Text

1 Is it nothing to you that heaven’s King
Came down to this world of woe,
That He suffered and bled, and rose from the dead,
That eternal life you might know?

Refrain:
Is it nothing to you that grace is free,
And that God in His love doth call?
Is it nothing to you? Is it nothing to you?
Is it nothing, nothing to you?

2 Is it nothing to you that by and by
You must travel death’s dark vale,
Where Jordan’s waves the pathway laves,
And all but Christ doth fail? [Refrain]

3 Is it nothing to you that some sweet day
In the heavenly land so fair
You may join the song that the ransomed throng
Are forever singing there. [Refrain]
