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

Bring them in and keep them

Representative Text

1 Bring them in and keep them from going astray again,
Precious souls of Jesus, souls for whom He died;
Think not when you’ve rescued them out of their sin and stain,
They will safely ever in His love abide.

Refrain:
You must help them upward, cheer them on their way,
And in loving kindness help them day by day;
You must lead them gently toward that world above,
Till their feet are firmly planted in His love.

2 Sore temptations hover around and about their way;
Satan, loath to lose them, follows close behind,
Whispers glowing promises, leading the soul astray;
You must be a brother, faithful, true and kind. [Refrain]

3 Bring them in! for Jesus commanded you so to do;
Bring them from the highways and the waste of sin
To the fold eternal, in heaven, prepared for them;
While the door is open, lead, O lead them in. [Refrain]
