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, 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,

1 There are needy ones around us,
Yes, we meet them ev’ry day,
Who need a kindly hand to point
Them to the narrow way;
Let us haste to help our brother,
Tell of Jesus’ pow’r to save;
Tell them how a willing sacrifice,
On the cross His life He gave.

Let us help to save our brother
From the paths of sin and woe;
Tell with joy the gospel story
Ev’rywhere that we may go.

2 Swift from us the hours are passing,
Who will volunteer today,
To take their part in pointing men
To Christ, the Life, the Way?
Jesus calls us, are we ready
Now to say, here, Lord am I;
In His name to sow the precious seed,
For the reaping by and by. [Refrain]

3 Let us follow where He leadeth,
Over land or over sea;
In His dear service to be true,
Wherever it may be;
Let us sacrifice our pleasure,
Wand’ring souls in love to win;
For the Christ who gave His precious life,
To redeem a world from sin. [Refrain]
