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

Representative Text

1 Come to Christ, one and all, ev’rywhere,
Follow Him, and His Cross gladly bear;
Listen to His pleading, Jesus you’ll be needing
When He’s interceding for men over there.

Calling, calling, list to His call,
Come and live, escape Sin’s thrall;
Yoke of sin is galling, many men are falling,
Hear the Master calling for you, one and all.

2 Jesus died on the Cross, grim and tall,
Died for me, died for you, died for all;
Make now your decision for a home Elysian,
Treat not with derision now your Master’s call. [Refrain]

3 Friends may pray for your soul till death’s dew
On your brow tells to them all too true,
Pray’rs all unavailing, song and sermon failing,
Grief to them entailing, ever lost are you. [Refrain]

4 Why delay? Enter now, there is room
In that Land Blessed where flow’rs e’er bloom;
Danger in delaying, cease your Lord betraying,
Time you were obeying Him who saves from doom. [Refrain]
