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. If I come to Jesus,
He will make me glad;
He will give me pleasure
When my heart is sad.

Refrain
If I come to Jesus,
Happy I shall be.
He is gently calling
Little ones like me.

2. If I come to Jesus
He will hear my prayer;
He will love me dearly,
He my sins did bear. [Refrain]

3. If I come to Jesus
He will take my hand,
He will kindly lead me
To a better land. [Refrain]

4. There with happy children,
Robed in snowy white,
I shall see my Savior
In that world so bright. [Refrain]
