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.

Representative Text

1. Preach the Gospel, sound it forth,
Tell of free and full salvation;
Spread the tidings o’er the earth,
Go to every tribe and nation.

Refrain
Spread the joyful tidings
In anthem and story
Jesus hath redeemed us,
Oh, give Him the glory!

2. Preach the Gospel, full of joy,
While on grace and mercy dwelling;
Heart and soul in full employ,
As the story you are telling. [Refrain]

3. Preach the Gospel, make it clear,
By the blood of Christ remission;
Give the message, make them hear,
This alone is our commission. [Refrain]

4. Preach the Gospel full of love,
Christ’s compassion fully knowing;
Seek the power from above,
While His great compassion showing. [Refrain]

5. Preach the Gospel as if God
Sinners lost through you were seeking;
His salvation through the Word
Speak as if the Lord were speaking. [Refrain]
