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

Full Text

1 Have mercy on me, Jesus,
And wash away my sin;
I'm lost, but oh, my Savior,
Wilt Thou not take me in?
Jesus, take me in,
Jesus, take me in!
I'm lost, but oh, my Savior,
Wilt Thou not take me in?

2 I long to be forgiven,
And know that I am Thine;
Oh, let me now come to Thee,
And take this heart of mine.
Jesus, take me in,
Jesus, take me in!
I'm lost, but oh, my Savior,
Wilt Thou not take me in?

3 I know I'm vile and sinful,
And often full of doubt;
But yet I must come to Thee,
Oh, do not cast me out!
Jesus, take me in,
Jesus, take me in!
I'm lost, but oh, my Savior,
Wilt Thou not take me in?

4 Remember Thy rich promise,
Remember Calvary,
And let a poor, lost sinner
Take shelter, Lord, in Thee.
Jesus, take me in,
Jesus, take me in!
I'm lost, but oh, my Savior,
Wilt Thou not take me in?

5 Oh, yes, lost one, I'll take you,
For such I came to save;
I long for you have waited,
Now look, believe and live.
I will take you in,
I will take you in:
You're lost, but I will save you,
And freely take you in.
