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 song for the Master,
Sweetly and fervently giv’n,
And One who in darkness had wandered,
Returned to the Saviour and heav’n.
Only a song, only a song,
Truly and tenderly giv’n,
To those who are fainting and weary,
‘Twill lead them to Jesus in heav’n.
2 Only a song for the Master,
A heart from its sorrow beguiled,
Forgot for a moment its burden,
Looked up thro’ its weeping and smiled. [Refrain]
3 Only a song for the Master,
And eyes that were closing in death,
Shone bright with a heavenly glory,
Grew fainter and fainter each breath. [Refrain]
4 Only a song for the Master,
The lips of the singer are dumb,
They’re singing a song for the Master,
Where sorrow and death can not come. [Refrain]Source: Songs of the Kingdom: prepared for the use of young people's societies and adapter for prayer meetings, Sunday schools and the home #5
