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 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.

575. To Be Lost in the Night

1 Oh, come to the Savior, thou poor, weary soul,
’Tis Jesus invites thee to come;
By the pow’r of His blood would He now make thee whole,
And fit thee to dwell in His home.

Refrain:
To be lost in the night, in eternity’s night,
To sink in despair and in woe;
But such is thy doom, if thou turn from the light,
Refusing His mercy to know.

2 His great, loving heart beats in pity for thee,
He anxiously waits for thee now;
Oh, turn not away, but His bleeding hands see,
They’ll smooth the dark clouds from thy brow. [Refrain]

3 Your time now is passing, eternity’s near,
The sun now hangs low o’er thy way;
Oh, turn to Him now, the glad gospel word hear,
Oh, hasten while yet there is day. [Refrain]
