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

1 I come, O gracious Lord;
I can no longer stay;
Thy gentle voice from paths of sin,
Is calling me away.
I come, as Thou hast said,
With all my sins to Thee,
And lay my burden at the cross,
Where Thou hast died for me.

2 No refuge, Lord, have I,
And wither should I go,
But unto Thee, whose cleansing blood
Can make me white as snow;
Thy mercy, Lord, I plead,
And look to Thee alone,
Wilt Thou not take me as I am,
And make me all Thine own?

3 Heal Thou my broken heart,
For I, Thy voice have heard;
I seek the shelter of Thy love,
And rest upon Thy word;
I come, I yield at last—
And give my wand’rings o’er,
O cleanse me by Thy precious blood,
And keep me evermore.
