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.

Many a soul in the battle of life

Representative Text

1 Many a soul in the battle of life Trembles with fear at the din and the strife, Bearing alone, amid trial and care, Burdens and sorrows God bids you to share. Refrain: Do something for others, Something for others today! Duty demands it, And Jesus commands it! Do something for others today. 2 Many in doubt or in fear of the way, Mutely appeal for your guidance today; On your demeanor the choice may depend— Are you concerned for the stranger or friend? [Refrain] 3 Many, disheartened by cruel deceit, Broken and worn by the pangs of defeat, Doubting, despairingly, helplessly stand, Waiting, perhaps, for your strengthening hand. [Refrain] 4 Many are turning away from the right Into the maze of the shadows of night; Go to them, speak to them, over them pray, Help them, support them—do something today. [Refrain]
