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

Representative Text

1 Bear the message onward,
Spread it far and wide;
Let the distant nations
Know that Jesus died,—
Died that God might justly
Sinners now forgive;
Died that through His merit
Guilty man might live.

Refrain:
Bear the message onward,
Spread it far and wide;
Let the distant nations
Know that Jesus died.

2 Bear the message onward,
Over land and sea;
Nothing save the Gospel
Makes men noble, free;
Spread, O spread the teaching
Fraught with endless bliss;
Angels well might covert
Work so grand as this. [Refrain]

3 Bear the message onward,
‘Tis so grandly true;
Wheresoe’er it cometh,
Eden blooms anew;
Work performed for Jesus
Cannot go unblessed;
Not till life is ended
Must God’s servants rest. [Refrain]
