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.

Representative Text

1 Do not turn from Christ away,
He is calling you today,
Mercy now is flowing free,
He would your sweet solace be.

Hear His gentle, pleading voice,
Make the Saviour now your choice;
He will make your soul rejoice,
Jesus calls you now.

2 On the cross of Calvary
Jesus died for you and me;
He will cleanse and make you whole,
And give comfort to your soul. [Chorus]

3 Pleadingly He calls your name,
He will make you free from shame, [Chorus]

4 All your sorrows soon will cease
If you claim His love and peace. [Chorus]

5 Jesus’ voice so sweet in tone
Now can touch your heart of stone;
Do not turn from Him away,
Hear His blessed call today. [Chorus]
