Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 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.
