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. Will you go and speak to the lost ones here
To the ones who have gone astray?
Will you lead them back to the Shepherd’s fold
From their wand’rings in sin’s dark way?

Refrain
Will you seek them now,
Will you seek them now?
Will you show them the way?
Will you show them the way?
Some one may be lost,
That you might lead home,
To that bright land of perfect day.

2. Will you go and speak to the sinners blind
And who walk in the midnight gloom?
Will you bear some light to their darkened mind?
Will you tell them their coming doom? [Refrain]

3. Will you tell them all if they will believe
That their souls will be truly blest?
For the Savior said that they shall receive
Precious blessings of peace and rest. [Refrain]

4. Will you go and tell them the Savior died
And provided for them the way?
If they fully trust in the Crucified
He will pardon their sins today. [Refrain]
