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,

1 Jesus, gracious one, calleth now to thee,
"Come, O sinner, come!"
Calls so tenderly, calls so lovingly,
"Now, O sinner, come?"
Words of peace and blessing,
Christ's own love confessing;

Refrain:
Hear the sweet voice of Jesus,
Full, full of love;
Calling tenderly, calling lovingly,
"Come, O sinner, come!"

2 Still he waits for thee, pleading patiently,
"Come, O come to me!
Heavy-laden one, I thy grief have borne,
Come and rest in me."
Words of love o'erflowing,
Life and bliss bestowing; [Refrain]

3 Weary, sin-sick soul, called so graciously,
Canst thou dare refuse?
Mercy offered thee, freely, tenderly,
Wilt thou still abuse?
Come, for time is flying,
Haste, thy lamp is dying; [Refrain]
