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

Representative Text

1. Tell me, brother, worn and weary,
Toiling o’er life’s pathway dim,
Are you shedding light for Jesus,
Are you witnessing for Him?
Are you seeking for the sinners,
Those whom Jesus died to win?
Are you pointing to the fountain
That can wash away their sin?

Tell me, brother, worn and weary,
Toiling o’er life’s pathway dim;
Are you shedding light for Jesus?
Are you witnessing for Him?

2. Are you watching by the wayside
For the fainting ones who fall?
Do you take them to the Savior,
Who has promised rest for all?
Do you love to tell of Jesus
More than all the world beside?
Does it bring a heav’nly blessing
With God’s people to abide? [Refrain]

3. Have you made a consecration
Of your time and earthly store?
Have you placed them on the altar?
Then the Master asks no more.
Thus, O Christian, may we journey,
Showing forth the Savior’s praise,
With our lamps all bright and burning,
That the world may catch their rays. [Refrain]
