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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Jesus is waiting to save you,
Bring him your burden of sin;
Knock at the portals of mercy,
Jesus will welcome you in.

Stay not, stay not,
Faithful his promise and true;
Stay not, stay not,
Now there is pardon for you.

2 Come when the morning is brightest,
Come in the springtime of youth,
Come in the vigor of manhood,
Drink at the fountain of truth. [Refrain]

3 Come, and the Saviour will give you
Life and its pleasures untold,
Come, and his mercy will keep you
Guarded and safe in his fold. [Refrain]

4 Come, for the moments are flying,
Come ere they vanish away;
Trust not the dawn of tomorrow,
Jesus is waiting today. [Refrain]
