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, 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,

1 Earth’s physicians know not to heal thee,
Thou hast tried them again and again;
Human agencies ne’er can cleanse thee,
Haste to come to the Savior of men.

O touch but the hem of His garment,
And virtue shall come out to thee;
So shalt thou be saved in a moment,
O sinner, but touch Him and see.

2 This Physician hath power to heal thee,
Men have tried Him again and again;
You need nothing but just to touch Him,
Haste to come to this Savior of men. [Refrain]

3 They must die who refuse to trust Him,
There is no other healing for thee;
They shall certainly live who touch Him,
Haste to come to the Savior and see. [Refrain]
