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, 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 Just as Thou art; to me, a child,
Self banished and unreconciled,
To win through patient mercy mild,
Come, Father, unto me.

2 Just as Thou art; without delay,
Although to rescue me Thy way
Grows dark with Calvary’s bloody day,
Come, Jesus, unto me.

3 Just as Thou art; my guilty soul
Beyond my struggling will’s control,
To cleanse from sin and make me whole,
Come, Spirit, unto me.

4 Just as Thou art; blest Three in One,
Accepting, as it were my own,
The praise of what is Thine alone;
Come, Father, Spirit, Son.
