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 On the wings of the morn, speed, O speed ye away;
There are millions who perish because of delay;
Sound the trump of Salvation, ye heralds of light;
Let the beams of His beauty dispel all the night.

Speed thee on, speed thee on,
Speed thee on today;
Speed thee on, speed thee on,
Speed thee on today.

2 On the wings of the morn, speed, away, then, O speed;
Lo! the hungry are crying; go help ye their need;
When ye know that a Saviour each want can supply,
Will ye still linger on, will ye leave them to die? [Refrain]

3 On the wings of the morn, speed ye onward His love;
Tho’ the tempter defieth, Christ reigneth above;
Tell the weary He giveth a rest from their cares,
And proclaim to the fettered that freedom is theirs. [Refrain]
