Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Over there where the heathen are dying,
Over there where the sin forces dwell,
We must carry the great salvation;
We must go and the glad story tell.

Over there where the millions are dying, over there,
Over there where God's tho’ts are turning, over there;
Over there darkened hearts are yearning, over there
We will pray for the souls over there.

2 Over there where temptation is calling,
Over there where the vices abound,
We must tell of the One who conquers,
We must tell of the Christ we have found. [Refrain]

3 Over there they are calling and dying,
Over there in the darkness they roam,
They are waiting to hear of Jesus,
They are calling to us, "Won't you come?" [Refrain]
