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 May we do something today for Thee,
Something to live thro’ eternity?
May we some tiny seed-thought sow
Which Thou wilt water and cause to grow?

Refrain:
Something today, something today,
May we do something today for Thee?
Something today, something today,
May we do something today for Thee?

2 May we do something today for Thee,
Some little act of that of worth shall be?
If but a cup of cold water give,
Yet done in Thy name ‘twill surely live. [Refrain]

3 May we do something today for Thee,
Tell the news life eternal is free?
To sad of heart and bowed with care,
May we carry cups of comfort there? [Refrain]

4 May we do something today for Thee?
“If done to the least 'tis done to Me.”
No selfish tho’ts and no cruel deeds,
But all the time little kindness seeds. [Refrain]
