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 to do something for Jesus

Representative Text

1 O, to do something for Jesus,
Who suffered and died for me;
To love him and serve him, my Savior,
And uphold him where'er I may be.
O, to do something just something,
That perishing sinners around
May come to the fountain of mercy,
Where life and salvation are found.
O, to do something for Jesus,
Who suffered and died for me;
To love him and serve him, my Savior,
And uphold him where'er I may be.

2 O, to do something for Jesus,
To go where he points the way,
And do with my might, in his service,
Whatsoever my hands find to do;
Always to speak at his bidding
Or hush when he whispers "be still;"
In patience to wait his approval,
In firmness to follow his will.
O, to do something for Jesus,
Who suffered and died for me;
To love him and serve him, my Savior,
And uphold him where'er I may be.

3 O, to do something for Jesus,
Be it only a little mite,
A look or a smile for the Master
Or a stand for the truth and the right;
Holding my light to the window,
That someone may welcome its rays,
Repeating my songs of thanksgiving
That some one may join me in praise.
O, to do something for Jesus,
Who suffered and died for me;
To love him and serve him, my Savior,
And uphold him where'er I may be.
