Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

The Wallapai the Navaho the Pima and the Papago

The Wallapai the Navaho the Pima and the Papago

Author: Leonard P. Brink
Tune: [The Wallapai, the Navaho]
Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

1. The Wallapai, the Navaho,
The Pima and the Papao,
Have heard of Christ the Lord;
Yea, Hopies and Mohaves too,
And Maricopas, not a few,
Give heed unto His Word.

2. The Yumas in their southern land,
Apaches strong, a warlike band,
His loving voice have heard;
The Zunies in the village brown,
Lagunas in their ancient town,
Were by His message stirred.

3. The Utes, who in the Rockies dwell,
And Jicarillas also, tell
Of His redeeming grace;
While Mescaleroes, 'way down south,
Have heard the message of His mouth,
Have seen His shining face.

4. But all along the Rio Grande
The towns of many Puebloes stand
Who have not heard His voice;
O, who will bring that message true
To Taos and to Isleta too,
And make their hearts rejoice?

5. Who'll enter in where gates are barred,
Where human hearts are seared and scarred
By superstition's pow'r?
O Lord, these fettered doors unclose,
Cast down what doth Thy Word oppose,
Dear Savior, speed the hour.
