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.

Only a Word

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.
