Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 must not break God’s holy law,
By wicked words profane,
For He will punish every one
That takes His name in vain.

Remember, remember, it is the Lord’s command;
Remember, remember, it is the Lord’s command.

2 How many break the Lord’s command,
And take His name in vain;
But if they tho’t how wrong it was,
They would not sin again. [Refrain]

3 O let us pity them, and pray
That they may be forgiven;
May come to God thro’ Christ our Lord,
And find the way to heaven. [Refrain]
