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 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]
