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.

Full Text

1 Come unto me and live—
Now hear thy Saviour say—
I freely will forgive,
And wash thy guilt away.

See! the fountain of life is flowing,
To cleanse thee from thy sin;
While the moments are swiftly going,
O come and enter in.

2 Come unto me and rest,
O weary wand’rer, come;
Thou shalt be fully blest,
Find comfort, peace, and home. [Refrain]

3 Once more Thy Saviour calls,
Once more His voice we hear;
The evening twilight falls,
The darker shades appear. [Refrain]
