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 I come, O blessed Lord, to Thee,
I come today;
I am no longer satisfied
To stay away.

2 I will not wait until my life
Like Thine shall grow:
I’ll come at once; I know I’ve sinn’d:
I’ll tell Thee so.

3 It is enough for me to know,
Thou wilt receive
And cleanse my heart from ev’ry sin
If I believe.

4 Help me that I forget myself
In loving Thee;
And let Thine image on my heart
Reflected be.

5 O take me, Saviour crucified,
And let me prove
That those who most have been forgiv’n
Have most of love.
