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 world is bowed down by its toiling and care,
And many have burdens to bear;
Then hasten the load of another to share,
As Jesus has done for you.

Refrain:
Do something for somebody, somewhere today,
Be kind, loving, faithful and true,
Do something for somebody, somewhere today,
As Jesus has done for you.

2 Lost multitudes stray in the desert of sin,
The Saviour is calling them in,
Go, tell of His love and the wanderers win,
As Jesus has done for you. [Refrain]

3 So many are wounded by sorrow’s keen dart,
Dark shadows beclouding the heart;
O go to them quickly, and comfort impart,
As Jesus has done for you. [Refrain]

4 Yes, some one is always in trial or need,
And troubles for sympathy plead;
O prove your compassion by word and by deed,
As Jesus has done for you. [Refrain]
