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 the fount of mercy,
Come with a broken heart;
Jesus will there receive thee,
Come to him as thou art,—
Sinful and poor and needy,
Helpless and weak and blind,
Come to the fount of mercy,
Pardon thy soul shall find.

Refrain:
Come to the fount of mercy,
Come with a broken heart;
Jesus will there receive thee,
Come to him as thou art.

2 Jesus has borne thy sorrow,
Jesus for thee has died;
Think of the nails that pierced him,
Think of his wounded side,
Now while his Spirit pleading
Points to the narrow gate,
Come to the fount of mercy,
Come, ere it be too late. [Refrain]

3 Come to the fount of mercy,
Why wilt thou yet delay?
Yonder a light is beaming,
Follow its golden ray;
Come to the fount of mercy,
There in contrition bow;
Jesus thy Lord is waiting,
Waiting to save thee now. [Refrain]
