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 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 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 Somebody did a kind deed today,
Was it you? Was it you?
Somebody sent a kind thought on its way,
Was it you? Was it you?
Somebody spoke a loving word,
That an answering chord in a hard heart stirred,
Recalling a long lost voice, once heard.
Was it you? Was it you?

2 Somebody helped an erring one’s feet,
Was it you? Was it you?
The path of virtue and truth to keep;
Was it you? Was it you?
Whispered of peace and sins forgiven,
Of a better life and a hope of Heaven;
And the chains that bound his soul were riven;
Was it you? Was it you?

3 Somebody rested a tired one,
Was it you? Was it you?
Who had toiled all day till the setting sun;
Was it you? Was it you?
Finished for him the task half done,
Encouraged his heart for the days to come,
And told of victories yet to be won.
Was it you? Was it you?
