[The] servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.@Matthew 22:10

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 wanderers in!

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.

Refrain

Gather them in! for yet there is room;
’Tis a message from God above;
O gather them into the fold of grace,
And the arms of the Savior’s love.

Refrain
