We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 I’m coming back to Jesus,
Guilty and full of sin,
I’ve wander’d so far from his mercy,
Still he will take me in.

I’m coming back to Jesus,
Back to the truth and right,
I know it will cost me a struggle,
But I’m coming back tonight;
I’m coming back to Jesus,
I’m coming back tonight.

2 I’m coming back to Jesus,
Back to the arms of love,
I’ll come, and all broken with sorrow,
His sweet forgiveness prove. [Refrain]

3 I’m coming back to Jesus,
Leaving all else behind,
Farewell to the sins that beguile me,
Now I shall pardon find. [Refrain]
