Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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 It may be on the rugged plain
Where lurks the treacherous foe,
Or out across the rolling sea
My King will bid me go.

My business here is very clear
In palace or in home so drear.
I’m work to do, I’ve news to bring;
I’m here on business for my King.

2 It may be in the valley low
Or on the mountain peak,
But ev’ry where that I may go,
For Jesus I will speak. [Refrain]

3 So anywhere my lot is cast
He may depend on me,
For I’m commissioned by His word,
And faithful I will be. [Refrain]
