Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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

Come, lost one, your Savior is calling

Representative Text

1 Come, lost one, your Saviour is calling,
He's pleading with tenderest voice;
Come out from you ways of transgression,
And hasten to make Him your choice.

Refrain:
Oh, why should you wander in darkness?
Oh, why should you longer delay,
When Jesus is ready to save you,
And keep you from sin ev'ry day?

2 Come with all thy guilt and pollution,
And call on the name of the Lord;
He's ready to cleanse and to bless you,
And save by His life-giving Word. [Refrain]

3 Thy sins tho' they be red like crimson,
Yea, tho' they be many and great,
Shall be blotted out by your Saviour,
If you come to Him ere too late. [Refrain]

4 The Lord has provided abundance,
Yea, all that ye need is in store;
Then come and partake of His bounty,
And trust Him for grace evermore. [Refrain]
