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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 One little word for Jesus
From over flowing heart,
Hath pow’r beyond our knowing
His message to impart.

Tell the story ever,
O deny Him never;
Tell the story ever
Of Jesus and His love.

2 One little word for Jesus
When all the way seems dim,
May lead some weary wand’rer
To perfect rest in Him. [Refrain]

3 How sweet to hear the whisper
Beyond the gates of gold;
“It was thy words for Jesus
That bro’t me to the fold.” [Refrain]
