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 List, ‘tis the Saviour calling,
Come, come, come;
Softly His tones are falling,
Come, O come home.

O precious invitation!
Thy Svaiour bids thee come;
‘Tis Jesus,
‘Tis Jesus calling now,
Softly, gently,
Sinner, come home.

2 Hark, ‘tis the Saviour pleading,
Come to me;
Turn not away unheeding
His love to thee. [Refrain]

3 Come with thy weight of sorrow,
Haste away;
Wait not until the morrow,
Come, come today. [Refrain]

4 Come, in thy heart believing,
He’ll forgive;
Light from the cross receiving,
Look, look and live. [Refrain]
