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. Lend a hand! lend a hand! in the work for the world!
Place these words in your banner, ne’er let it be furled
While sin, pain and sadness hold sway in the world,
Lend a hand! lend a hand! in the work for the world!

Refrain
Lend a hand! Lend a hand!
Lend a hand in the work for the world!
Lend a hand! Lend a hand!
Lend a hand in the work for the world!

2. There are eyes that are weeping where none wipe the tear;
There are hearts that are breaking for tidings of cheer;
There are sinners would turn from their sins were you near,
Lend a hand! lend a hand! in the work for the world! [Refrain]

3. There are lips that are burning where none hold the cup;
There are children who starve for a bit and a sup;
There are forms that are sinking, your hand might hold up,
Lend a hand! lend a hand! in the work for the world! [Refrain]

4. Lend a hand! lend a hand! there is coming a day
When He who shall weigh us, to each one will say,
Didst thou help every brother thou couldst in the way?
Lend a hand! lend a hand! in the work for the world! [Refrain]
