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,
Harry Plantinga

1 ‘Tis the Shepherd’s voice we hear,
Calling you and me;
To the precious fold so dear,
Calling you and me.

Many times in ev’ry day
We can hear him in our play,
Calling to the better way,
Calling you and me.

2 He is ever watching nigh,
Calling you and me;
Looking down from yonder sky,
Calling you and me. [Refrain]

3 Where the sweetest flowers grow,
Calling you and me;
Where the brightest waters flow,
Calling you and me. [Refrain]

4 To his gentle, loving breast,
Calling you and me;
Where the lambs in safety rest,
Calling you and me. [Refrain]
