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 Hymnary.org, 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

Refrain:
Live a-humble, humble
Humble yourselves the bell's done rung,
Live a-humble, humble
Humble yourselves the bell's done rung.
Glory and honor! Praise King Jesus!
Glory and honor! Praise the Lord!
Glory and honor! Praise King Jesus!
Glory and honor! Praise the Lord!
Live a-humble, humble
Humble yourselves the bell's done rung.

1 Watch that sun, how steady he runs,
Don't let him catch you with your work undone. [Refrain]

2 Ever see such a man as God?
He gave up his Son for to come and die,
Gave up his Son for to come and die,
Just to save my soul from a burning fire, [Refrain]

3 See God 'n' you see God 'n' you see God in the morning,
He'll come riding down the line of time;
The fire'll be falling, He'll be calling,
"Come to judgement come." [Refrain]

Folk Songs of the American Negro (No. 1), 1907
