Hymnary Friends,

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

All Because We Do Not Love Them

Representative Text

1 Many souls today are dying,
Sin and sorrow is their lot;
Darkness shrouds them with its mantle,
All because we love them not.

Refrain:
All because we do not love them,
Millions fill the heathen grave;
Brother, can you see them perish,
When a little love would save?

2 Brother, can we guiltless linger,
When to us the truth is giv’n?
Tearless, see the heathen dying,
Without God or hope of heav’n? [Refrain]

3 Love brought Jesus down from glory,
On the cruel cross to die;
Can we say we love the heathen,
If we turn away their cry? [Refrain]

4 Love undying, love eternal—
Love will send us o’er the wave,
Will impel us to our duty,
Helpless heathen souls to save. [Refrain]

5 Jesus said, “Go, teach all nations”;
They are lost if we delay;
Can we face Him at the judgment,
If His word we disobey?obey? [Refrain]
