Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Representative Text

1 Jesus is passing, Jesus is passing,
Come, all ye blind, and receive now your sight;
He will bend o’er you,
He will restore you,
He will exchange all your darkness for light;
Come, and the Saviour will give you your sight.

2 Jesus is passing, Jesus is passing,

His life He gave you,
One look will save you,
He will attend to the poor cripple’s call;
Now He is passing, is passing for all.

3 Jesus is passing, Jesus is passing,
Come, all ye poor, to the plenteous store;
Now He will lead you,
Ever will feed you;
Jesus invites you to hunger no more;
Come to the bountiful heavenly store.

4 Jesus is passing, Jesus is passing,
Come, ye afflicted by sin and by shame;
O we implore you,
Let Him restore you;
Come while He lingers and calls you by name;
Come, all ye laden with sin and with shame.
