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 you from the Savior have wandered away,
Return to Him quickly, O do not delay;
Let doubt and delusion no longer deceive,
But come as a sinner, repent and believe.

O brother, repent and believe on the Son,
A perfect salvation thro’ Him to receive;
Repent and believe on the Crucified One;
For life is for all who on Him will believe.

2 Believe in His Gospel, believe in His name;
Believe that He suffered your soul to reclaim;
His love and compassion you cannot conceive,
If you with contrition will come and believe. [Refrain]

3 Believe in His promise that never will fail;
Believe that forever His love will prevail;
Believe that He cometh his own to receive,
O come to the Savior, repent and believe. [Refrain]
