Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. 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,
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Someone is slighting the Saviour of men;
Lord, is it I? Lord, is it I?
Someone is spurning His love once again;
Lord, is it I?

Refrain:
Lord is it I? Lord is it I?
Pardon our weakness, and blot out each sin;
Hear us, dear Lord, as we cry!

2 Someone is halting, and counting the cost;
Lord, is it I? Lord, is it I?
Someone in darkness and sin may be lost;
Lord, is it I? [Refrain]

3 Someone’s betraying his Master today;
Lord, is it I? Lord, is it I?
Someone is walking a perilous way;
Lord, is it I? [Refrain]

4 Someone is living in selfish delight;
Lord, is it I? Lord, is it I?
Someone is turning his face from the light,
Lord, is it I? [Refrain]

5 Someone in silence is making the choice;
Lord, is it I? Lord, is it I?
Someone will yield to the Lord, and rejoice,
Lord, is it I? [Refrain]
