Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Gather them in, for there yet is room
At the feast that a King has spread;
O gather them in, let His house be filled,
And the hungry and poor be fed.

Out in the highway, out in the by-way,
Out in the dark depths of sin,
Go forth, go forth with a loving heart,
And gather the wand'rers in.

2 Gather them in, for there yet is room;
But our hearts, how they throb with pain,
To think of the many who slight the call
That may never be heard again. [Refrain]

3 Gather them in, for there yet is room,
'Tis a message from God above;
O gather them in to the fold of grace,
And the arms of the Saviour's love. [Refrain]
