We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Who would be greatest among you,
Let him be servant of all;
This is the Savior’s commandment,
This is the Spirit’s sweet call.
Unto the true and the faithful,
Soundeth this clarion call:
Who would be greatest among you,
Let him be servant of all.

2 Who would be greatest among you,
Let him be servant of all;
Drink of the cup of My sorrow,
Taste of earth’s wormwood and gall.
Deep are Gethsemane’s shadows,
Yonder the cross, grim and tall:
Who would be greatest among you,
Let him be servant of all.

3 Who would be greatest among you,
What shall the profit then be,
Gaining the world, if thou losest
Life thro’ eternity?
Voices of pleasure and calling
Unto the banqueting hall,
Who would be greatest among you,
Let him be servant of all.

4 Who would be greatest among you,
Mother of Zebedee’s sons,
Seats of the kingdom are given
Him who in lowliness comes.
Thrones on My right and My left hand
Only to heroes shall fall:
Those who obey My commandments,
These are the greatest of all.
