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 Go, messenger of Christ, proclaim
The glories of Emmanuel’s name;
The nations wait to hear thee tell
Of Him who saves from death and hell.

2 Go, armed with truth and filled with love,
Go, harmless as the gentle dove,
In wisdom and with burning zeal,
Go, and the way of life reveal.

3 Go, clothed in majesty divine,
Go, and thy grace with glory shine;
Go, while the Spirit’s quickening power
Doth fit thee for each trying hour.

4 And when against thee foes shall rise
And former friends shall thee despise;
Remember that the Lord will be
A comfort and defense for thee.

5 And when thy work on earth is o’er,
And thou shalt preach to men no more,
Unceasing joys shall thee await
In thine eternal blest estate.
