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 No longer I’ll wait, O my Saviour!
I’ll come at Thy bidding today!
For over my spirit there comes like a flood,
The thought of the Saviour who shed His own blood
To save a poor sinner like me.

2 No longer I’ll wait, O my Saviour!
I’ll come at Thy bidding today!
My heart, once so stony, is melted to tears
To think how my Lord has been waiting for years,
To save a poor sinner like me.

3 Forgive and receive me, my Saviour!
Accept my surrender today!
I bless and adore Thee, O wonderful Love
That sought me, and call’d me, and stoop’d from above
To save a poor sinner like me.
