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 The moments are passing, the days quickly fly,
The time to help someone is here;
Go seek out the needy, O pass them not by,
But give to them comfort and cheer.

Be a helper to someone on life’s weary road,
Be a helper and help carry somebody’s load;
Be a helper scattering sunshine abroad,
Leading the weary and helpless unto their God.

2 The friendless and homeless, the heart-sick and sad,
Are needing a friend and a guide;
A word kindly spoken would make their hearts glad,
And brush ev’ry tear drop aside. [Refrain]

3 The sick and the aged, the helpless and poor,
Are needing our help ev’ry day;
So many have sorrow and pain to endure,
While we are so happy and gay. [Refrain]
