Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Come, for the Saviour is calling,
Come to Him just as you are;
Haste, for the shadows are falling,
Gates of the night are ajar.

Refrain:
Just as you are without waiting,
Though you have wandered afar,
He will receive, if you only believe,
O come to Him just as you are.

2 You need not wait to grow better,
Every such effort is vain;
Jesus can break every fetter,
Blot out your guilt and your stain. [Refrain]

3 Come as you are without fearing,
Jesus is waiting to save;
Yes, for the vilest of sinners
His life a ransom He gave. [Refrain]

4 Come, for the Saviour is pleading,
He loves and longs to forgive;
He offers you free salvation,
Accept His pardon and live. [Refrain]
