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

The Oriole Call

Out in the woods where the big trees grow

Tune: [Out in the woods where the big trees grow]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Out in the woods where the big tress grow,
Hear the oriole call;
His is the message the world should know,
his is the life for all.
Come, let us learn of his buy ways,
Sing as he sings it, a song of praise,
Feeling his trust in the Father's care,
Shielding us eveywhere.
Hear the oriole call.

2 come to the woods where the soft winds blow;
Learn the oriole call;
There in the spaces our souls shall grow
Nearer the God of all.
Lifting our eyes to the distant height,
Praying for strength in our upward flight,
Soaring and singing our way along,
Leaving behind a song.
Hear the oriole call.
