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. Someone must tell the glad story,
The blessèd old story so true,
Of love and of wonderful glory,
O say will that someone be you?

Refrain
O say will that someone be you?
O say will that someone be you?
To tell the glad story of grace and of glory,
O say will that someone be you?
O say will that someone be you?
O say will that someone be you?
To tell the glad story of grace and of glory,
O say will that someone be you?

2. Someone must tell of a Savior,
To others across the deep blue,
Now waiting His love and His favor,
O say will that someone be you? [Refrain]

3. Someone must tell of the blessing
That comes with each morning so new,
The goodness of Jesus confessing,
O say will that someone be you? [Refrain]

4. Someone must tell of salvation,
Someone must to Jesus be true,
And carry; to each waiting nation
The story that always is new. [Refrain]

William C. Poole was born and raised on a farm in Maryland. His parents belonged to the Methodist church. He graduated from Washington College and became a Methodist minister in Wilmington, Delaware area. He was pastor of McCabe Memorial, Richardson Park and other churches. In 1913 he was superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of Delaware. He wrote about five hundred hymns. The writing was done as recreation and a diversion from his pastoral work. His goal in writing as well as in being a minister was to help people.
