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

Only a word for the Master

Representative Text

1 Only a word for the Master,
Lovingly, quietly said;
Only a word! Yet the Master heard;
And some fainting hearts were fed.

2 Only a look of remonstrance,
Sorrowful, gentle and deep;
Only a look! Yet the strong man shook;
And he went alone to weep.

3 Only one cry from the sinner,
Bitterly, earnest and wild;
"Help, Lord! I die!" Rose in agony;
And the Savior sav'd His child.

4 Only an hour with the children,
Pleasantly, cheerfully giv'n;
Still seed was sown, In that hour alone,
Which would bring forth fruit for heav'n.
