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,

1 Brother, leave the path of sin,
Jesus waits to help you;
He can break the bands within,
Jesus waits to help you.

Refrain:
Victory! victory!
Glorious, glorious victory!
Christ will break the tempter’s power,
Give you vict’ry from this hour.

2 Brother, be no more a slave,
Jesus waits to help you;
Perfect freedom you may have,
Jesus waits to help you. [Refrain]

3 Brother, come and join our band,
Jesus waits to help you;
He will lead you by the hand,
Jesus waits to help you. [Refrain]

4 Brother, will you still delay?
Jesus waits to help you;
Take a stand for right today,
Jesus waits to help you. [Refrain]
