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.

'Tis thy command that every one

Representative Text

1 'Tis thy command that ev'ry one
Should thy disciple be,
'Tis thy command that we should leave
Our all, and follow thee.

Chorus:
'Tis thy command, with heart and hand
Thy cause defending still,
To do and dare, thy cross to bear;
And by thy grace we will. [Chorus]

2 'Tis thy command that ev'ry heart
Thy temple, Lord, should be,
Should keep the perfect law of love,
And walk by faith with thee. [Chorus]

3 'Tis thy command that we should grow
In grace from day to day,
Should watch against the tempter's power,
And not forget to pray. [Chorus]

4 And since obedience to thy law
Our test of love must be,
Accept the willing sacrifice
That now we bring to thee. [Chorus]
