We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 There is joy in serving Jesus,
Working for Him day by day,
Toiling in His fertile vineyard,
Or along the King’s highway.

Serving Jesus, serving Jesus,
He is always good to me;
Serving Jesus, serving Jesus,
Till His blessed face I see.

2 There is peace in serving Jesus,
For the storms obey His will;
He’s my Captain in the tempest,
And he whispers, “Peace be still!” [Refrain]

3 There is hope in serving Jesus,
Though dark clouds the sunshine hide,
I can trust His loving promise,
Light shall come at eventide. [Refrain]

4 There’s a crown for serving Jesus,
Waiting in my home above,
I shall lay it down before Him,
‘Tis the jeweled crown of love. [Refrain]
