We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Never Can Tell

Listen to the invitation: Come, ye weary, come to me

Author: Annie Harris (1883)
Tune: [Listen to the invitation:]
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Listen to the invitation:
“Come, ye weary, come to Me!”
Come, and you shall find salvation!
Will you not to Jesus flee?

Refrain:
You never can tell when the Lord will call you,
You never can tell when your end will be;
Cast your poor soul in the sin-cleansing fountain,
Come and get saved, and happy be.

2 Jesus loves you; do not tarry!
Hasten to His side today,
And, by faith on Him relying,
All your guilt will wash away. [Refrain]

3 Oh, ’tis madness to reject Him;
For, when you are called to die,
You will want a loving Savior—
So in time for mercy cry. [Refrain]

4 Oh, this wonderful salvation,
Offered now so full and free,
Seek it, ere ’tis passed forever;
Reconciled to Jesus be! [Refrain]
