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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

When the call rings out through the

Representative Text

1 When the call rings out thro’ the whole wide land,
Will you follow in His way?
Pledging heart and hand for His cause to stand,
Ready ever to obey?

When the call rings out will you be ready?
When the call rings out will you be true?
Glad to take your part with a willing heart,
Will you be ready when He calls for You?

2 When the call rings out will you take your place
With the workers side by side?
Going forth each day in a joyful way,
Where the Lord himself doth guide? [Refrain]

3 When the call rings out will you answer “yes,”
To the loving heav’nly Friend?
In his footsteps tread who is just ahead,
Till you reach your journey’s end?

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
