Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 The gospel trumpet sounds,
Let those that hear obey;
A King prepares a royal feast
For hungry souls today.
A King who sits enthron’d,
Where saints adoring stand,
And multitudes of angels wait
On His divine command.

2 The gospel trumpet sounds
In thrilling tones sublime;
The message of redeeming love
To earth’s remotest clime.
From yonder rifted Rock,
Salvation’s river flows;
O come, and take the heav’nly gift
Our glorious King bestows.

3 He sends His heralds forth,
And bids them in His name,
The rich provision of His grace
To each and all proclaim.
Again the trumpet sounds;
‘Tis calling, calling still,
The feast is spread, and yet there’s room,
“Come, whosoever will.”
