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 To the world in its sorrow, sing of hope today;
Tell of Christ who knows, tell of Christ who cares,
Of the hand with its touch of healing by the way,
Of the love that the burden shares.

Refrain:
Send the word afar o’er ev’ry land and sea,
Hope for all, hope for all!
Christ the only hope for all the world shall be,
When its kingdoms and thrones shall fall.
Send the word afar o’er ev’ry land and sea,
Hope for all, hope for all!
On from age to age, with a light divine,
That star of hope shall ever shine.

2 To the world in its groping, point the upward way,
Tell of Christ our guide, tell of Christ our light,
Of the One who will follow all who go astray
Thru the depths of the darkest night. [Refrain]

3 To the world in its doubting, sing of heav’n above,
Tell of Christ on earth, tell of Christ on high,
Of the life that is promised thru redeeming love,
And the hope that can never die. [Refrain]
