Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 We are pledg’d to active service,
Not to live in selfish ease;
Lifting burdens we remember,
Not Himself, did Jesus please.

Lift up the fallen, lift up the fallen,
Lift up the heart bow’d down with care,
Lift up the fallen, bring them to Jesus,
Look up and lift up wherever you are.

2 Lonely stricken hearts we comfort,
And with help the needy bless;
For by deeds and not enjoyments
God doth measure our success. [Refrain]

3 Looking up to heav’n for guidance,
We look round for souls to win;
Lift them up and show them Jesus,
Who alone can save from sin. [Refrain]

4 Jesus gave to us our mission,
And He gently leads our feet;
Where the path of self-denial,
And the path of blessings meet. [Refrain]
