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.

Representative Text

1 I have wander’d so long midst the pleasures of earth
Spread around me in dazzling array;
But a still voice divine
Speaks to this heart of mine
Bidding me to turn back today.

And I may be saved, even I may be saved,
Oh, what mercy, Lord, how can it be?
Jesus suffered and died, on the Cross crucified,
Just to save a poor sinner like me.

2 Shall I list to that voice, shall I turn from the way,
That my footsteps have followed so long?
Still He tenderly calls,
“Come, oh, come unto me,”
“All ye weary” of sin and wrong. [Refrain]

3 Can it be that my life can be made pure and clean,
By the blood shed on Calvary’s tree?
But His promise is plain,
He will cleanse ev’ry stain
From the heart that accepts His plea. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, come to me now, take me just as I am,
All my sin, all my will I resign;
To be guided by Thee
Is sufficient for me,
Just to know that Thy love is mine. [Refrain]
