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

Carry my weak ones

Representative Text

1. "He shall carry the lambs in his bosom," we read,
He shall gather them there with his arm,
His tenderness stoops to their bitterest need,
In him there is shelter from harm.

Go carry my weak ones, the Shepherd would say,
Go out in the darkness and cold,
And search till you find them tho' far they may stray,
And carry them safe to the fold.

2. To us he has given the care of the sheep,
To lead them until he shall come
To seek for the lost ones o'er valley and steep,
And bring them all faithfully home. [Chorus]

3. For one day he cometh to gather his own,
And what will we have then to say?
He'll ask for the soul of the brother we've known
Who fainted and fell by the way. [Chorus]
