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.

1. When Jesus calls me, I will go;
I will! I will!
When it is best to answer No,
I will! I will!
I’ll shun temptation’s pathway wide,
And journey by my Savior’s side,
And in His peace and love abide.
I will! I will!

2. When Jesus says, Rejoice and sing,
I will! I will!
A song of praise and love I’ll bring,
I will! I will!
A song of joy for triumphs won,
A song of rest when toil is done;
If I may cheer some lonely one,
I will! I will!

3. I’ll answer when I hear His call,
I will! I will!
Should He command, Give me thine all,
I will! I will!
Whene’er for Christ I need to fight,
With gleaming sword and armor bright,
I’ll bravely battle for the right,
I will! I will!

4. When in the conflict I should stay,
I will! I will!
I’ll ask for wisdom every day;
I will! I will!
We cannot know till we begin
How hard it is to conquer sin;
But by and by a crown I’ll win;
I will! I will!
