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, 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

1 Come, come today!
Do not delay,
Come to thy Father’s home!
Look to him now,
In meekness bow,
Leave all thy sins and come!

2 Come, come today!
Trust him alway,
Yield now to him thy soul!
Thou shalt find joy,
Without alloy;
Come, he will make thee whole!

3 Come, come today!
How canst thou stay
Far from thy Father’s side?
He’ll take thee in,
Cleanse every sin,
And let his peace abide.

4 Come, come today!
Turn not away,
If thou wouldst now be blest.
Hark to his voice!
Come and rejoice!
Come, he will give thee rest.

5 Come, come today!
Earth’s joys decay.
Heav’n’s glories thou may share
With all his own,
Close to the throne
And praise him ever there.
