Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

552. Ye Messengers of Christ

1 Ye Messengers of Christ,
His sov'reign voice obey;
Arise! and follow where he leads,
And peace attend your way.

2 The Master, whom ye serve,
Will needful strength bestow;
Depending on his promis'd aid,
With sacred courage go.

3 Mountains shall sink to plains,
And hell in vain oppose;
The cause is God’s, and must prevail,
In spite of all his foes.

4 Go, spread a Saviour’s fame;
And tell his matchless grace,
To the most guilty and deprav'd
Of Adam’s num'rous race.

5 We wish you, in his name,
The most divine success;
Assur'd that he who sends you forth
Will your endeavours bless.
