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 “I’ve missed it at last,” he repeated,
While the shades of despair gathered fast;
“My hopes are forever defeated,
I have missed, I have missed it at last!”

Refrain:
“I’ve missed it at last, missed salvation,
From the pure and the holy outcast;
Nevermore peace to feel, but damnation—
I’ve missed, I have missed it at last.”

2 “The thief on the cross, I remember,
Ne’er refused till the summer was past,
And now in death’s chilling December,
I have missed, I have missed it at last! [Refrain]

3 “I’ve sold out my soul for a feather,
No hope in the whirlwind’s fierce blast;
I’m undone forever and ever,
I have missed, I have missed it at last!” [Refrain]

4 “The Spirit, insulted, resisted,
Still plead till the die I had cast,
I said ‘Go Thy way,’ I insisted;
He went, I have missed it at last!” [Refrain]

5 He buried his face in the pillow,
With horror his soul all aghast;
And back from eternity’s billow,
He shrieked, I have missed it at last!” [Refrain]
