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.

1 Who'll be the next to follow Jesus?
Who’ll be the next his cross to bear?
Someone is ready, someone is waiting;
Who’ll be the next a crown to wear?

Refrain:
Who’ll be the next, who’ll be the next?
Who’ll be the next to follow Jesus?
Who’ll be the next to follow les us now?
Follow Jesus now!

2 Who’ll be the next to follow Jesus?
Come and bow at his precious feet;
Who’ll be the next to lay every burden
Down at the Father’s mercy seat?

3 Who’ll be the next to follow Jesus?
Who’ll be the next to praise his name?
Who’ll swell the chorus of free redemption,
Sing hallelujah, praise the Lamb?

4 Who’ll be the next to follow Jesus
Down through the Jordan’s rolling tide?
Who’ll be the next to join with the ransomed
Singing upon the other side?
