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

53. Gather them In

1 Gather them in, for there yet is room
At the feast that a King has spread;
O gather them in, let His house be filled,
And the hungry and poor be fed.

Out in the highway, out in the by-way,
Out in the dark depths of sin,
Go forth, go forth with a loving heart,
And gather the wand'rers in.

2 Gather them in, for there yet is room;
But our hearts, how they throb with pain,
To think of the many who slight the call
That may never be heard again. [Refrain]

3 Gather them in, for there yet is room,
'Tis a message from God above;
O gather them in to the fold of grace,
And the arms of the Saviour's love. [Refrain]
