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 Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today?

Full Text

1 Go forth on wings of faith and pray'r,
Ye pages bright with love;
Tho' mute, the joyful tidings bear,
Salvation from above.

Refrain:
Silent messengers, go ye forth,
From ocean to ocean, from South to North;
Seed of the word, it shall not be sown in vain.

2 Go, tell the sinful, careless soul,
The warning God has giv'n;
Go, make the wounded spirit whole,
With healing balm from heav'n. [Refrain]

3 Go to the rude, the dark, the poor,
That live estranged from God;
Bid them the pearl of life secure,
Bo't with a Saviour's blood. [Refrain]

4 O Jesus, friend of dying men,
Thy presence we implore;
Without thy blessing all is vain;
Be with us evermore. [Refrain]
