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.

Representative Text

1 Lo, a voice is calling out across the waters deep and wide,
Who will go, who will go?
Tell the heathen of salvation,
Of the one who for them died;
Who will go, who will go?

Refrain:
Who will go, who will go?
With the gospel to the distant heathen land;
Who will go, who will go?
With the message of salvation grand?

2 O how long they have been groping in the gloom of sins dread night;
Who will go, who will go?
Hasten tell them of their error,
Let them have the gospel light;
Who will go, who will go? [Refrain]

3 Lo, the Master calls for workers to go forth at His command,
Who will go, who will go?
Do not tarry, do not linger,
Do not longer idle stand;
Who will go, who will go? [Refrain]

4 Consecrate your ev’ry talent, give the Lord what you possess,
Who will go, who will go?
They shall shine as stars forever
Who turns souls to righteousness;
Who will go, who will go? [Refrain]
