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

Spread the Good News

Representative Text

1 Spread the good news of salvation,
News, O so wondrously sweet,
Unto the perishing round you
Gladly the story repeat.

Spread the glad tidings,
Spread the glad tidings,
Tell of God's infinite love,
Tell of a loving Redeemer,
Pleading for sinners above.

2 Spread the good news of salvation,
Many, perchance, have not heard,
Blessed salvation is promised,
Only believe in his word. [Chorus]

3 Spread the good news of salvation,
Loudly the message proclaim;
Tell unto all that he offers
Pardon thro' Jesus dear name. [Chorus]
