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 Send the gospel message over land and sea,
Strike the chains of darkness, set the captive free;
Be the work of mercy earnestly begun,
Tell to ev’ry creature what the Lord has done.

Send the blessed news,
On the wings of faith and earnest prayer;
Send the news, the blessed news!
Into all the world the tidings bear.

2 Need we cross the sea the labor to begin,
While around us souls are dying in their sin?
‘Neath the very shadows of our sacred spires
See the smoke of incense rise from Pagan fires. [Refrain]

3 Into all the world, go, preach the word of peace,
Work, and watch, and pray, His kingdom to increase.
Give of time and talent, give of earthly store,
Send the blessed news: “God reigns from shore to shore.” [Refrain]
