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.

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,

748. Jesus Is Pleading for Thee

1 Hear the gentle Spirit’s call,
Jesus is pleading for thee;
There is pardon free for all,
Jesus is pleading for thee.

Refrain:
Wash in the blood,
Wash in the blood of Jesus;
Wash in the blood,
Wash in the blood of the Lamb.

2 Sinner, will you come today?
Jesus is pleading for thee;
Leave that dark and dreary way?
Jesus is pleading for thee. [Refrain]

3 Oh, He drank that bitter cup,
Jesus is pleading for thee;
And this world you must give up,
Jesus is pleading for thee. [Refrain]

4 He will wash your garments white,
Jesus is pleading for thee;
Turn your darkness into light,
Jesus is pleading for thee. [Refrain]

5 He will sweep your guilt away,
Jesus is pleading for thee;
Make your soul as clear as day,
Jesus is pleading for thee. [Refrain]

6 He will give you joy and peace,
Jesus is pleading for thee;
Glory that will never cease,
Jesus is pleading for thee. [Refrain]
