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 Go and tell Jesus, weary, sin-sick soul!
He’ll ease thee of thy burden, make thee whole;
Look up to Him, He only can forgive,
Believe on Him, and thou shalt surely live.

Go and tell Jesus, He only can forgive,
Go and tell Jesus, O turn to Him and live.
Go and tell Jesus,
Go and tell Jesus,
Go and tell Jesus, He only can forgive.

2 Go and tell Jesus, when your sins arise,
Like mountains of dark guilt before your eyes;
His blood was shed, His precious life He gave,
That mercy, peace, and pardon you might have. [Refrain]

3 Go and tell Jesus, He’ll dispel thy fears,
Will calm thy painful doubts and dry thy tears;
He’ll take thee in His arms, and on His breast,
Thou may’st be happy, and forever blest. [Refrain]
