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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 How shall I come to Jesus?
How can I now believe,
Since I at first refused him,
Will he my heart receive?

Jesus, I look alone to thee,
Jesus, thy blood was shed for me;
Coming by faith, my pray’r shall be:
Save, oh, save me Jesus.

2 How shall I come to Jesus?
Nothing have I to bring;
Dare I approach his presence?
He is a royal King. [Refrain]

3 How shall I come to Jesus?
Nothing have I to plead;
Say, will the great Physician
Deign my request head? [Refrain]

4 Now shall I come to Jesus,
Now will I seek his face;
Pleading, in faith, his merit,
Asking, in faith, his grace. [Refrain]
