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

Have ye looked for my sheep in the desert, For those who have missed their way

1 Have ye looked for the sheep in the desert,
For those who have missed their way?
Have ye been in the wild waste places,
Where the lost and the wandering stray?

Go, Go, search for the lost,
Out on the mountains of sin;
Go, Go, count not the cost!
Go find them and bring them in.

2 Have ye searched for the poor and needy,
No clothing, no home, no bread?
The dear Saviour of men walked with them,
And had nowhere to lay His head. [Refrain]

3 Have ye carried the free living water
To quicken the thirsty soul?
Have ye said to the sick and wounded
That Christ Jesus can make them whole? [Refrain]

4 Have ye stood by the sad and the weary
And spoke of the happy land?
Have ye guided the tottering footsteps
To the shore of the golden strand? [Refrain]
