Gather Them In

Verse 1:
Gather them in! for yet there is room
At the feast that the King has spread;
O, gather them in!–let His house be filled,
And the hungry and poor be fed.

Refrain:
Out in the highway, out in the byway,
Out in the dark paths of sin.
Go forth, go forth, with a loving heart,
And gather the wand’rers in!

Verse 2:
Gather them in! for yet there is room:
But our hearts–how they throb with pain,
To think of the many who slight the call
That may never be heard again!

Verse 3:
Gather them in! for yet there is room;
Tis a message from God above;
Oh, gather them into the fold of grace,
And the arms of the Saviour’s love!

F.J. Van Alstyne/Geo.C. Stebbins
