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 Over there where the heathen are dying,
Over there where the sin forces dwell,
We must carry the great salvation;
We must go and the glad story tell.

Over there where the millions are dying, over there,
Over there where God's tho’ts are turning, over there;
Over there darkened hearts are yearning, over there
We will pray for the souls over there.

2 Over there where temptation is calling,
Over there where the vices abound,
We must tell of the One who conquers,
We must tell of the Christ we have found. [Refrain]

3 Over there they are calling and dying,
Over there in the darkness they roam,
They are waiting to hear of Jesus,
They are calling to us, "Won't you come?" [Refrain]
