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.

Representative Text

1 Lost one, the Saviour calls,
“Come unto me;”
Come, ere life’s twilight falls,
Jesus entreateth thee.
See, at the throne of God
Waiteth the King.
Pleading His precious blood,
Priceless offering!

Lost one, hasten now!
To Jesus go!
“Tho’ thy sins be scarlet,
They shall be white as snow.”

2 No other offering
Thy need can meet;
To Christ thy soul must cling,
He is God’s “Mercy Seat.”
Bought by His precious blood,
Thou mayst be free;
Cleansed in that crimson flood,
Saved eternally. [Refrain]

3 Paid is thy ransom price,
O captive, see!
Not gold, but blood of Christ
Hath fully purchased thee.
Step into freedom now,
Cast off thy chains,
Till of thy bondage dark
Not a spot remains. [Refrain]
