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

Full Text

Refrain:
O give me your hand,
Give me your hand,
All I want is the love of God;
Give me your hand,
Give me your hand,
You must be loving at God's command.

1 You say you're aiming for the skies,
You must be loving at God's command.
Why don't you quit your telling lies?
You must be loving at God's command. [Refrain]

2 You say the Lord has set your free,
You must be loving at God's command.
Why don't you let your neighbor be?
You must be loving at God's command. [Refrain]

3 Some seek God's face but don't seek right,
You must be loving at God's command.
Pray in the day but none at night,
You must be loving at God's command. [Refrain]
