We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

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]
