Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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]
