Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

83. I Must Find Christ To-day

1 Long have I sought the heav'nly way!
How can I longer wait?
I must find Christ this very day,
Or it may be too late.

I must find Christ the Savior to-day,
I can no longer wait;
I must find Christ the Savior to-day,
Ere it shall be too late.

2 How can I rest with such a weight
Pressing upon my soul?
Here will I kneel at mercy's gate
Till he has made me whole. [Chorus]

3 Low at the cross in tears I bend,
Waiting for his sweet peace;
When will his grace and love descend,
When shall I have release? [Chorus]
