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 “Who is there among you”—‘tis the Master’s voice—
“Who will bear My message, making Me his choice?
Who for service ready now will volunteer?
Let him answer gladly, while I bend to hear.”

Refrain:
Who will listen gladly, who will make reply?
Haste, O haste to answer, ere the day goes by!
Who will listen gladly, who will make reply,
“Send me on Thine errand, Master, here am I”?

2 Who will go in patience through the broad highways?
Who will take the byways, not for human praise?
Who will go for Jesus where the shadows fall,
In His name uplifting straying ones that fall? [Refrain]

3 Who will go, unfearing harm and weariness,
Walking in His footsteps, breaking hearts to bless?
Who will go in pity, seeking for the lost?
Who will follow Jesus, counting not the cost? [Refrain]

4 Who will go, untiring, full of faith and love,
Knowing there remaineth rest in heav’n above?
Jesus, Lord and Master, who has loved me so,
On Thy gracious errands help me now to go. [Refrain]
