We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Come ye weary souls oppressed,
Find in Christ the promised rest;
On Him all your burdens roll,
He can wound, and He make whole.

2 Ye that dread the wrath of God,
Come and wash in Jesu’s blood;
To the Son of David cry,
In His word He’s passing by.

3 Naked, guilty, poor, and blind,
All your wants in Jesus find;
This the day of mercy is,
Now accept the proffered bliss.

4 Debtors, who have naught to pay,
Come to Jesus, haste away;
All your sins on Him were laid,
All your debts the Surety paid.

5 "It is finished!" lo! He cries,
Ere on yonder cross He dies;
O believe the record true,
Jesus died for such as you.
