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.

Representative Text

1 Oh, the gospel news proclaim,
Go ye forth in Jesus’ name,
Tell it in song, tell it in song;
Christ your cause will e’er sustain,
And with Him, the King, you’ll reign,
Tell it in song, tell it in song.

Refrain:
Of His lowly, humble birth,
How He blessed the poor of earth,
Tell it in song, tell it in song;
How He walk’d on Galilee;
How He died on Calvary’s tree,
Tell it in song, tell it in song.

2 How His life He meekly gave,
Precious souls from sin to save,
Tell it in song, tell it in song;
See His glorious banner wave
All triumphant o’er the grave,
Tell it in song, tell it in song. [Refrain]

3 Of His home beyond life’s sea,
Where He dwells eternally,
Tell it in song, tell it in song;
In that home a place will be—
Sinner, yes, for you and me,
Tell it in song, tell it in song. [Refrain]
