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.
1 Only a messenger, yet ready am I
Sweetly to answer with the prompt reply,
Master, the message that thou givest me,
Gladly will I carry, blessed Lord, for thee.
Hear now the ringing call, "Shine, brightly shine,
Bearing the light of love, kindled above."
Though but a messenger, yet I am thine,
Saviour, with all my heart, I'll do my part.
2 Only a messenger, yet bravely I go,
Scattering brightness just the best I know;
Smiling and happy as the day is long,
Driving back the tear-drops with some happy song. [Chorus]
3 Only a messenger, yet honored am I
Serving the King of kings, the Lord most high;
Faithful I'll try to be until the end,
For the God of Love is my dear Lord and Friend. [Chorus]Source: Bible Study Songs: for junior societies, junior and primary Sunday schools #153c
