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, ye children of light,
Go and banish the night,
Go as heralds of Christ and the day;
Go, salvation proclaim,
In the Saviour’s dear name,
Go and drive all the darkness away.

Over mountain and sea,
Where the lost ones may be,
Let the news of redemption be told;
Till o’er valley and plain,
Our Redeemer shall reign,
And the wand’ring are bro’t to the fold.

2 Go, whate’er may betide,
O’er the desert so wide,
Bid the weak and despairing arise;
That each heart may enthrone
The Redeemer alone,
And to Him lift their sin-darkened eyes. [Refrain]

3 Where the sunlight may gleam
Over lake-let or stream,
O’er the wild, rough and lonely highway;
Go from shore unto shore,
Go in faith evermore,
Bear the light of the glad gospel day. [Refrain]
