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.

Representative Text

1 Some mother’s child, out in the wild,
Far from the dear Shepherd’s fold;
Bruised by the storm, sad and forlorn,
Lost in the darkness and cold.

Refrain:
Some mother’s child, out in the wild,
Strayed from the fold away;
Loved ones are there, pleading in pray’r,
Praying for you all day.

2 Some mother’s child, head-strong and wild,
Snared by the demon of drink;
Hell is your doom, dense is the gloom
Oh, sinner, stop now and think. [Refrain]

3 Some mother’s child, lost and beguiled,
Jesus is passing this way—
Seeking the lost, great tho’ the cost,
Turning their night into day. [Refrain]

4 Some mother’s child, looked up and smiled,
When the Samaritan came;
Great tho’ the need, kind was the deed,
Done in the Master’s dear name. [Refrain]

5 Some mother’s child, saved from the wild,
Sitting with Christ on His throne;
Ever to be, happy and free,
With the redeemed ones at home.

Some mother’s child, saved from the wild,
Walking the streets of gold;
Ever to be, happy and free,
Safe in the heav’nly fold.
