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.

Representative Text

1 Come to Jesus the Saviour for rest,
He is waiting to cleanse you from sin;
Come, recline on his dear loving breast,
He will give you the witness within.

Jesus loves, he will save,
He will cleanse you from every foul stain.

2 Do not think of the sins that are passed,
Come just now to the Lord for release,
And your burdens and troubles all cast
At his feet, and he’ll give you sweet peace. [Refrain]

3 Why not come to the Saviour to-day,
And accept of salvation so free?
He will cleanse all your vileness away,
‘Twas for this Jesus died on the tree. [Refrain]
