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 Take Jesus and live,
Is the burden of song
That came from the heart,
As we journey along,
Thro’ the dark vale of woe
To the city above,
Where the living may dwell
In the haven of love.

Take Jesus and live,
Take Jesus and live,
Is the burden of song,
As we journey along;
Take Jesus and live,
Take Jesus and live,
Is the burden of song,
As we journey along.

2 Take Jesus and live,
When thro’ shadows and gloom
We safely passed thro’,
Leading down to the tomb.
For his arm will uphold
All the weary, oppressed,
Till they enter in peace
To the mansions of rest. [Refrain]

3 Take Jesus and live,
With the beaming of light,
When darkness shall flee,
And the morn cometh bright.
When all earth’s woes are o’er,
And the sin-curse is past;
And we dwell with the pure
In life’s city at last. [Refrain]
