Representative Text

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.

Refrain:
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]
