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.

Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

90. Turn to the Lord

1 Come, ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love, and power.

Turn to the Lord and seek salvation,
Sound the praise of his dear name;
Glory, honor, and salvation,
Christ the Lord has come to reign.

2 Now, ye needy, come and welcome;
God's free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance--
Every grace that brings you nigh.

3 Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness he requireth
Is to feel your need of him.

4 Come, ye weary, heaven-laden,
Bruised and mangled by the fall
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all.

I will sprinkle you with water,
I will cleanse you from all sin,
Sanctify and make you holy,
I will come and dwell within.
