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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

O Tell Me

Representative Text

1 O tell me that beautiful story,
Of Jesus, His work and His word;
O tell me that beautiful story,
Much sweeter than mortal e’er heard;
Sing me the song of redemption,
Sing of that city of gold;
O sing till my soul to the music
Of sweet love’s redeeming unfold.

O talk to me, sing to me, teach me,
I must hear it again and again;
Till my life is hid with the blessèd,
Till for me it is Yea and Amen.

2 O teach me the way of the Master,
O show me the pathway to trace;
My feet in the vale have grown weary,
So far from the beautiful place;
Sing of the way that He walked in,
As an example for me;
The lessons He taught in Judea,
In Cana and sweet Galilee. [Refrain]
