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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1. The Gospel trumpet’s sounding,
The year of jubilee,
And grace is all abounding,
To set the bondmen free.

Refrain
Return, return, ye captives,
Return unto your home,
The Gospel trumpet’s sounding,
The jubilee is come!
The Gospel trumpet’s sounding,
The jubilee is come!

2. Forsake your wretched service,
Your master’s claims are o’er;
Avail yourselves of freedom,
Be Satan’s slaves no more. [Refrain]

3. A better Master’s calling,
In accents true and kind;
He asks a loving service,
And claims a willing mind. [Refrain]

4. He offers you salvation,
And points to joys above;
And, longing, waits to make you
The objects of His love. [Refrain]

5. In living faith accept Him,
Give up all ease beside;
While grace is loudly calling,
Look to the Crucified. [Refrain]
