Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, 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 clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

501. Never Can Tell

1 Listen to the invitation:
“Come, ye weary, come to Me!”
Come, and you shall find salvation!
Will you not to Jesus flee?

You never can tell when the Lord will call you,
You never can tell when your end will be;
Cast your poor soul in the sin-cleansing fountain,
Come and get saved, and happy be.

2 Jesus loves you; do not tarry!
Hasten to His side today,
And, by faith on Him relying,
All your guilt will wash away. [Refrain]

3 Oh, ’tis madness to reject Him;
For, when you are called to die,
You will want a loving Savior—
So in time for mercy cry. [Refrain]

4 Oh, this wonderful salvation,
Offered now so full and free,
Seek it, ere ’tis passed forever;
Reconciled to Jesus be! [Refrain]
