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 Out in the highways, the lanes and the hedges,
Over the cold rugged mountains of sin,
There are the sheep from the fold that have wander’d;
Jesus commandeth to gather them in.

Refrain:
Tenderly, patiently, tell them the story
Brought by the angels from glory above;
Over and over its message repeating,
Woo them by kindness and win them by love.

2 Out in the highways, the lanes and the hedges,
Lift from the weary the burdens they bear;
Go in the spirit and strength of the Master!
Go and remember His children are there! [Refrain]

3 Pity the erring; we know not their sorrow;
Many are longing God’s grace to receive—
Longing to drink of the life-giving water
Flowing so freely for all who believe. [Refrain]

4 Save, or they perish! O, fly to the rescue!
Jesus hath purchas’d their ransom from sin!
Now to the arms of His infinite mercy,
Lo, He commandeth to gather them in. [Refrain]
