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. Down from the glories of Heaven,
Down to the world of woe;
When there was no eye to pity,
Jesus said, I will go.

Refrain
Go, go, go, go,
Leave what He asks you to leave;
Pray for your part in the harvest,
Give what He asks you to give.

2. Out in the dark they are dying,
For them His life He gave;
Go, tell the lost of salvation,
Give them a chance to live. [Refrain]

3. Uttermost part is His order,
Dare any answer no?
What will you do when you meet Him,
If you refuse to go? [Refrain]
