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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Come to Jesus, Come Today

Full Text

1 Come to Jesus, come today,
He will take your sins away;
Come, O come, why do you wait?
Come, while open is the gate.

Heed the gentle, loving call,
Taking Jesus as your all.
Then, O then you’ll happy be,
For His glory you shall see.

2 He is knocking at your heart,
Heed this call ere He depart;
Ask of Him His pardoning grace;
Find in Him a hiding place. [Refrain]

3 Bring your guilt to Him with grief,
He will give you quick relief;
Jesus wept to see your state,
Come, or you may be too late. [Refrain]

4 Cast on Him your every care;
All your sorrows He will share;
He your burdens all will take,
And will never thee forsake. [Refrain]
