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 Jesus! come away!
Forsake thy sins oh, why delay?
His arms are open night and day;
He waits to welcome thee!

2. Come to Jesus! all is free;
Hark! how he calls, "Come unto me!"
I cast out none, I'll pardon thee,"
Oh, thou shalt welcome be!

3. Come to Jesus! cling to him;
He'll keep thee far from paths of sin:
Thou shalt at last the vict'ry win,
And he will welcome thee.

4. Come to Jesus! Lord, I come!
Weary of sin, no more I'd roam,
But with my Saviour be at home;
I know he'll welcome me!

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
