Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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.

Full Text

Can't you live humble?
Praise King Jesus!
Can't you live humble
To the dying Lamb?

1 Lightning flashes, thunders roll,
Make me think of my poor soul. [Refrain]

2 Come here, Jesus, come here, please,
See me, Jesus, on my knees. [Refrain]

3 Ev'ry body come and see,
A man's been here from Galilee; [Refrain]

4 came down here and talked to me,
Went away and left me free. [Refrain]
