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.

Far round the world thy children sing their song

Far round the world thy children sing their song

Author: Basil J. Mathews
Tune: DUNBLANE CATHEDRAL
Published in 13 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Far round the world thy children sing their song;
From east and west their voices sweetly blend,
Praising the Lord, in whom young lives are strong,
Jesus our Guide, our Hero, and our Friend.

2 Where thy wide ocean, wave on rolling wave,
Beats thro' the ages, on each island shore,
They praise their Lord, whose hand alone can save,
Whose sea of love surrounds them evermore.

3 Thy sun-kissed children on earth's spreading plain,
Where Asia's rivers water all the land,
Sing, as they watch thy fields of glowing grain,
Praise to the Lord who feeds them with his hand.

4 Still there are lands where none have seen thy face,
Children whose hearts have never shared thy joy;
Yet thou wouldst pour on these thy radiant grace,
Give thy glad strength to every girl and boy.

5 All round the world let children sing thy song:
From east and west their voices sweetly blend,
Praising the Lord in whom young lives are strong,
Jesus our Guide, our Hero, and our Friend.

Amen.
