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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Rise, children of God, a voice bids you rise;
The voice of God calls to you from the skies;
Awaken to effort for Christ and His laws,
For Christ and His Gospel, for Christ and His cause.

2 The Spirit divine fills Heaven today,
Descending to earth, He calls you: Obey.
The nations are rolling as tide on our shores,
The Spirit says, "Win them, they wait at your doors."

3 O! Spirit of light, bring light to all hearts,
Fill all with the strength Thy presence imparts.
The voice of our leader we all must obey;
"Go forth, make disciples; there’s ever a way."

4 Lo! God will arise, and scatter the foe,
The strongholds of sin, and Satan o’erthrow.
Then forward in God’s name for Christ’s holy laws,
For Christ and His Gospel, for Christ and His cause.
