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 the glad story of Jesus who came,
Full of compassion, the lost to reclaim;
Tell of redemption thro’ faith in His name:
Tell the glad story again!

Tell it again! Tell it again!
Tell the glad story to suffering man;
Tell it, oh tell it, again!

2 Tell the glad story where, sad and oppress’d,
Many in bondage are sighing for rest;
Tell them in Jesus they all may be blest:
Tell the glad story again! [Refrain]

3 Tell the glad story with patience and love,
Urging the lost ones His mercy to prove;
Tell them of mansions preparing above:
Tell the glad story again! [Refrain]

4 Tell the glad story when Jordan’s dark wave
Calleth our loved ones its billows to brave:
Tell them that Jesus is mighty to save:
Tell the glad story again! [Refrain]
