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

396. The Perishing World

1 On the borders of eternity the world is standing now,
In a moment all the wicked will be lost in endless woe;
Oh, they need some gospel teacher that they might salvation know,
Who will quickly go and warn them? Brother, sister, will you go?

Refrain:
Hear them calling for the gospel,
Come and help us to be saved;
Hear them calling for the gospel,
Come and help us to be saved.

2 Oh, how gratefully we welcome now the gleam of freedom’s light,
Yet the millions have not seen it, still they roam in deepest night;
Hear, oh, hear from every nation cries of sorrow and distress,
Time is surely, swiftly ending, haste their dying souls to bless. [Refrain]

3 We will pray the Lord to send His saving truth through every land,
“Go ye therefore,” saith the Master, do you hear the great command?
Oh, review your consecration, hasten to the harvest field,
And a thousand souls in heaven gathered, be thy golden yield. [Refrain]
