Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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]
