Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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 Pray for the fallen! oh, think of them kindly,
Take them to Jesus, his mercy implore;
Though they have wandered, and sad their condition,
Prayer and our efforts their souls may restore.

Pray for them earnestly, pray for them faithfully,
Prayers will be answered through Jesus’ dear name;
Pray for them fervently, loving, and tenderly,—
Prayer and our efforts the lost may reclaim.

2 Pray for the fallen! oh, do not forsake them,
Slaves to the tempter who laughs at their pain;
Fast in the fetters he forged to deceive them,
Pity and help them again and again. [Refrain]

3 Pray for the fallen, the world has renounced them!
Keen are its glances, its censure is cold;
Yet the dear Saviour will gently receive them,
He will not turn them away from his fold. [Refrain]

4 Pray for the erring! oh, think of them kindly
They are our neighbors, though far they have strayed;
They are our brothers: go forth to their rescue!
Give them our friendship, our comfort, our aid. [Refrain]
