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.

Representative Text

1 Some one is failing to win precious souls,
Lord is it I,
Lord is it I?
Some one is drifting away from the goal,
Lord is it I, is it I?

Refrain:
Lord, it is I who have spurned Thy grace;
Lord, it is I who have turned from Thy face;
Some one in heav’n will be miss’d from His place,
Lord is it I, is it I?
Lord, it is I who have spurned Thy grace;
Lord, it is I who have turned from Thy face;
Some one in heav’n will be missed from His place,
Lord is it I?
Lord, is it I?

2 Some one is failing to turn from his sin,
Lord is it I,
Lord is it I?
Trying this world and its favor to win,
Lord is it I, is it I? [Refrain]

3 Some one is robbing the poor of the Lord,
Lord is it I,
Lord is it I?
Some one the fruits of iniquity hoard,
Lord is it I, is it I? [Refrain]

4 Some one is daily neglecting to pray,
Lord is it I,
Lord is it I?
Some one from Jesus is drifting away,
Lord is it I, is it I? [Refrain]

5 Some one’s resisting the Spirit just now,
Lord is it I,
Lord is it I?
Some one’s unwilling before Him to bow,
Lord is it I, is it I? [Refrain]
