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,
Harry Plantinga

1. Come to Him who still is pleading,
Haste to receive Him;
While He yet is interceding,
Can you slight and grieve Him?
While His love your heart is leading,
There is joy for you.

Refrain
Come, oh, come,
Come, oh, come,
No one else but He can save you,
He the Truth, the Way.

2. While the lamp of life is burning,
Speed to the mountain;
While for rest your soul is yearning,
Seek the precious fountain.
He who longs for your returning,
Sheds His blood for you. [Refrain]

3. While the dews of grace are falling,
Softly and tender,
While His voice again is calling,
All to Him surrender.
On the cross with grief appalling
Once He died for you. [Refrain]

4. Still we hear that voice repeating,
O ye that sorrow,
Time is brief, the hours are fleeting,
Stay not til the morrow.
Come and share the Master’s greeting,
Lo! He waits for you. [Refrain]
