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. O the greatest joy is found along the way,
And the heart is happy, singing all the day,
For the Lord with richest blessing doth repay,
When we use our talents for the Master!

Refrain
O the joy that service for the Savior brings,
How the heart rejoicing at its duty sings!
In some other heart the joy-bell sweetly rings,
When we use our talents for the Master!

2. Some may have a voice to speak a cheering word,
Let the Gospel news o’er all the world be heard,
Other souls to better living can be stirred,
When we use our talents for the Master! [Refrain]

3. Some may have a willing hand to lend and aid,
Helping those who by their burdens are dismayed,
Richly will the little efforts be repaid,
When we use our talents for the Master! [Refrain]

4. Let us then be up and doing all the while,
Helping one another meet the daily trial,
For some weary soul with hope will brightly smile,
When we use our talents for the Master! [Refrain]
