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,

1 Who will toil for Jesus?
Who will work and pray?
Who will lead the sin sick
To the Christ today?
Who will turn some wand’rer
From the paths of sin,
Striving for the Master
Precious souls to win?

Refrain:
Who will work for Jesus,
Seeking souls to save?
Who will fight His battles
Like a soldier brave?
Who will gladly labor
In His vineyard wide?
Who will love His service
More that all beside?

2 Who will fight for Jesus
In His holy cause?
Who will rear His standard
And obey His laws?
Who will, like the valiant,
Stand against the wrong,
Loyal, bold and fearless,
Steadfast, brave and strong? [Refrain]

3 Who will live for Jesus?
Who will please the Lord?
Who will trust His promise
And revere His word?
Who will prove His fealty
To the heav’nly King?
Who will seek His brother
To the fold to win? [Refrain]
