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,
Harry Plantinga

752. I Am Coming, Lord, to Thee

1 I am coming, Lord, to Thee with my broken heart;
I am coming, Lord, to Thee for rest;
Wilt Thou hear my humble plea, bid my sins depart?
Oh, release me, Savior, I’m oppressed.

Refrain:
I am coming, Lord, to Thee, wilt Thou hear my humble plea?
I am coming with my heart oppressed;
I am coming, I am coming,
I am coming, Lord, to Thee for rest.

2 I am coming, Lord, to Thee with relenting will,
I will gladly lay my burden down;
I will consecrate to Thee and Thy law fulfill,
I will bear the cross, and wear a crown. [Refrain]

3 I am coming, Lord, to Thee, and with anguish riv’n,
I am weary, worn, and tired of sin;
Lord, I press my urgent plea, may I be forgiv’n?
While I knock, O Savior, let me in. [Refrain]

4 I am coming, Lord, to Thee with an aching breast,
And I know that Thou wilt hear my cry;
I will leave the paths of sin, for my heart’s distressed,
Save me, or I perish, Lord, and die. [Refrain]

5 I am coming, Lord, to Thee, for I’m sick and sore,
Do not turn from me Thy smiling face;
Lord, for mercy now I call, I will sin no more,
Wilt Thou hear and save me by Thy grace? [Refrain]
