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 Draw me, O Lord, with the cords of thy love,
Draw me still closer to thee;
What is the world to the mansion above
Thou art preparing for me?

Refrain:
There is my home, my beautiful home,
Over the wave-girded sea;
There in thy likeness my soul shall awake,
Happy, dear Saviour, in thee.

2 Draw me, O Lord, to the arms of thy rest,
Open to welcome me there;
Soon shall I fly like a bird to its nest,
Ever thy glory to share. [Refrain]

3 Draw me, O Lord, where the friends of the past
Roam on that bright, sunny plain;
O that my spirit may join them at last,
Never to lose them again. [Refrain]

4 Draw me, O Lord, where the faithful and tried
Labor and sorrow no more;
Draw me away where I hope to abide,
Anchored and safe on the shore. [Refrain]
