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.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Speak to me, Lord, I’m pray’rfully list’ning,
Unto my soul come blissfully near;
Lovingly, gently speak to my Spirit,
Words I am waiting, longing to hear.

Blessed Redeemer, wonderful Saviour,
Speak to Thy waiting servant again;
Praise and thanksgiving, honor and glory,
Be unto Thee forever, Amen.

2 Kindle within me zeal and ambition,
Holy desire to labor for Thee;
Burden my soul for others’ salvation,
Give me Thy light, now clearly to see. [Refrain]

3 Speak to me, Lord, I humbly beseech Thee,
Fill me with pow’r and judgment of ways;
Give me for duty full consecration,
That I may honor Thee with my days. [Refrain]
