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 Merciful Savior, come and be my comfort;
Vanish all idols in Thy holy presence;
Come and establish in my heart Thy kingdom,
Come, O Lord Jesus.

2 Come as the Bridegroom to the bride belovèd,
Come Thou to strengthen faith and love and patience;
Be Thou a very present help in danger;
Come, O Lord Jesus.

3 Come in my pleasure, come to me in sorrow,
Come in the anguished hour of dire temptation,
Come and deliver me from sin and evil,
Come, O Lord Jesus.
