During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

Someone will climb

Representative Text

1 Some one will climb life’s rugged hills;
Some one God’s purpose will fulfil;
Some one will utter wisdom’s code;
Some one will soften sorrow’s road.

Why not my feet the summit reach?
Why not my tongue the gospel preach?
Why not my thot’s with wisdom shine?
Why not the Christ-like life be mine?

2 Some one will sing the heart’s glad song;
Some one will help the weak along;
Some one will light the night of gloom;
Some one will cheer the sick one’s room. [Refrain]

3 Some one will guide the little feet;
Some one the aged with kindness greet;
Some one will love’s sweet balm impart,
Blessing the lonely, dying heart. [Refrain]
