We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Israel’s sheep scattered far and wide,
Wandering on with no shepherd to guide,
Far from the Saviour who for them has died;
What are you doing for them?

How Jesus loved them! but we have despised,
Forgotten, neglected, in scorn undisguised.
Think you to face Him and hear His “Well done,”
With Israel, His chosen, left dying alone?

2 “First to the Jew” was the order He gave;
First to the Jew came Jesus to save;
First to the Jew when sins He forgave;
What are you doing for them? [Refrain]

3 Hid for a moment His face at their call,
Soon in His mercy He’ll gather them all;
Loved for their fathers, e’en far tho’ they fall;
What are you doing for them? [Refrain]
