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. If you’ll listen unto me,
A story to you I’ll tell,
How Jesus Christ the Son of God
Came in my heart to dwell;
And by His mighty power
He’s changed my night to day,
And now I’ve a life that’s filled with joy,
Since Jesus came to stay.

Refrain
I bless the happy day
When Jesus came to stay,
And tho’ my sins were crimson red,
He’s taken them all away;
And by His mighty power,
He’s changed my night to day,
And now I’ve a life that’s filled with joy,
Since Jesus came to stay.

2. Before He came to stay
I had my doubts and fears,
I longed to know the peace and joy
I felt in other years;
Now Satan is cast out,
And every passing day
God gives me strength my foes to meet,
Since Jesus came to stay. [Refrain]

3. Yes, since my Savior came
Within my heart to dwell,
He helps me learn the living way,
And do His blessèd will;
And when at last He sees
My work on earth is done,
I’ll then go shouting home to God,
To receive the crown I’ve won. [Refrain]
