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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 There is need of deeper consecration
To the work the Master bids us do;
He has called us, and the way is open,—
I am ready—are you?

I am ready, I am ready,
I am ready and I will be true;
I am ready, I am ready,
I am ready for the work—are you?

2 Not with trumpet blast or flaming banner,
That the world our work of love may view,
But with deep humility in service,—
I am ready—are you? [Refrain]

3 Mighty works are waiting for the faithful,
But, alas, the loyal ones are few
Who, renouncing self, take up the burden,—
I am ready—are you? [Refrain]
