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 Somebody came and lifted me
Out of my sin and misery,
Somebody came, oh, who could it be,
Who could it be but Jesus?

Chorus:
Who could it be, O who could it be?
Who could it be but Jesus?
Who could it be, O who could it be?
Who could it be but Jesus?

2 Somebody bent so tenderly,
Pleading so long and patiently,
Somebody came, oh, who could it be,
Who could it be but Jesus? [Chorus]

3 Somebody whispered sweet and low,
Telling me just the way to go,
Somebody spoke, I listened, and lo,
Who could it be but Jesus? [Chorus]

4 Somebody holds my hand each day,
Guiding my feet lest I should stray,
Walking with Him how blessed the way,
Who could it be but Jesus? [Chorus]
