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 Gather the children in days of youth,
Gather them in,
Gather them in;
Teach them the right way, the way of Truth,
Gather the children in.

Refrain:
Gather them in,
Gather them in,
Gather them in for the garner above,
Gather the children in.

2 Gather the children from out the streets,
Gather them in,
Gather them in;
In from the hovels and dark retreats,
Gather the children in. [Refrain]

3 Gather the children from scenes of strife,
Gather them in,
Gather them in;
Gather them into the Way of Life,
Gather the children in. [Refrain]
