Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Jesus is the friend of sinners,
Jesus died our souls to save;
On the cruel cross He suffered,
There His precious life He gave.

Sinner, come to Christ today;
Come, accept Him while you may;
Now His precious blood will cleanse you,
Will you come to Him today?

2 f in sin you choose to wander,
Still reject His love so true,
You must part from friends and loved ones,
Who are praying now for you. [Refrain]

3 Will you not in faith accept Him,
Trust the Christ who died for you,
That when life on earth is over,
You His loving face may view? [Refrain]

4 When our journey here is ended,
When life’s race is fully run,
If we’ve followed Christ, our Savior,
We shall hear His sweet "Well done!" [Refrain]
