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

1 The whole wide world for Jesus!
For His is its domain,
And His is the dominion,
From sea to sea to reign;
To Him the kings of Sheba
Their royal gifts shall bring,
And isles afar their tribute,
Shall render to their King.

2 The whole wide world for Jesus!
O Church of Christ, awake!
Put on thy strength, O Zion,
Thy posts of duty take;
Go forth upon thy mission,
In Jesus’ name alone,
Till earth, with all her millions,
His sov’reignty shall own.

3 The whole wide world for Jesus!
Rejoice, ye saints, anew!
For brightly scenes prophetic
Are looming into view;
The world from sleep is waking,
To sink in night no more,
For Jesus soon, triumphant,
Shall reign from shore to shore.
