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. Young and radiant, He is standing,
As He stood at Salem’s shrine;
Just a lad, a lad forever,
With a look and grace divine!
Tell me, how it is ye sought Me?
Wist ye not My Father’s plan?
I must be about His business,
Would I be a Son of Man.

2. I can see Him humbly kneeling,
As He knelt upon the hill;
While the waters hushed their music,
And the night grew bright and still:
Brothers, tell Me why ye sought Me?
Wist ye not My Father’s plan?
He must grow in grace and wisdom,
Who would be a Son of Man.

3. Like a flame His soul is striking
In His wrath at greed and shame;
Ye have made a den of robbers
Of the temple to His name;
Know ye not His equal justice?
Wist ye not My Father’s plan?
He must bathe His sword in Heaven
Who would be a Son of Man.

4. I can see Him dying, loving
Unto death on Calvary;
His dear hands still pleading, praying,
Worn and torn for you and me!
Brothers, will ye scorn and leave Me?
Wist ye not My Father’s plan?
He must wear a crown of sorrow
Who would be a Son of Man.
