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

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

Refrain:
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]
