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 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.
