Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 , or you can click the Donate button below.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

26. The Spirit and Bride say come

1 A glorious invitation
Now calls you to the feast;
Each soul is now invited,
The greatest and the least.
Come, all ye heavy laden,
With sorrow or with care—
Today you are invited,
Your burdens Christ will bear.

Refrain:
The Spirit says come,
The Bride says come;
let him that heareth say come;
Let him that thirsteth come.
And whosoever will,
Let him take of the water of life freely.

2 That blessed invitation!
Oh, hear today and heed,
The Spirit now is calling,
Why longer dwell in need?
Thy soul today is fainting
For Christ the living bread;
Accept the invitation,
Come while the feast is spread. [Refrain]

3 Repeat the invitation!
Pass on blessed news;
let none forsake His mercy,
Or pardon now refuse,
‘Tis Jesus who is calling—
All things are ready, come!
The Spirit will direct you,
The Bride will welcome home. [Refrain]
