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 When the Savior had arisen
From the silent grave,
Then He to His loved disciples
This commandment gave:

"Go ye, therefore, teach the nations
Of the risen Son;
Tell them of the great redemption
Sent to everyone."

2 "Tell them of the night of sorrow,
In Gethsemane;
Show to them the weary footprints,
Up to Calvary." [Refrain]

3 "Go and tell them how I loved them,
Even on the tree,
How I thought of them with pity,
In death’s agony." [Refrain]

4 Now to us this message cometh,
From the sinner’s Friend,
With the promise, "I am with you,
Even to the end." [Refrain]
