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.

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]
