We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Have We Done What We Could?

She hath done what she could, said the kind, loving Savior

Author: Jennie Wilson
Tune: ["She hath done what she could," said the kind, loving Savior]
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 “She hath done what she could,” said the kind, loving Savior,
When the ointment so precious was poured on His head;
By the hand of a sinner redeemed through His mercy,
Her contrition displayed by the tears that she shed.

Are we bringing the gift of true love to the Savior?
Are we honoring Jesus so gentle and good?
Oh, how sweet it will be when our service is ended
If we hear His voice say, “Ye have done what ye could!”

2 Have we done what we could in the white fields around us,
Where the ripe grain for reapers invitingly waits?
Have we done what we could leading souls out of darkness
Into light that is shining through heavenly gates? [Refrain]

3 Have we done what we could in extending the Kingdom,
That in power and glory shall ever increase?
Have we done what we could filling earth with the homage
Of the Savior whose praises shall nevermore cease? [Refrain]
