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 Have you sought them, have you sought them?
Who are wayward and weary, wand’ring from home?
Have you brought them, have you brought them,
To the Saviour who bids them come?

Refrain:
O delay not, but seek to bring,
Other souls to own His sway,
Heed His call, His word obey;
O delay not, but for the King
Strive to garner precious sheaves today.
O delay not, but seek to bring
Other souls to own His sway;
Heed His call, His word obey,
Tell the story and let your light so shine,
Leading to your Lord divine.

2 Have you told them, have you told them,
Of a love everlasting, changeless and true?
Ye behold them, ye behold them,
Who are waiting a word from you. [Refrain]

3 Are you giving, are you giving,
Of the blessings that crown you, blessings divine?
Are you living, are you living,
So your light as a lamp shall shine? [Refrain]
