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 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 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

Full Text

1 God so loved a world of sinners wretched and undone,
That He freely gave for them His well-beloved Son,
Whosoever looketh unto Christ on Calvary,
Shall be ransomed; “Whosoever” that means me.

Refrain:
“Whosoever,” Hallelujah!
Jesus saves and sets me free,
I will love Him, ever love Him,
“Whosoever” that means me.

2 “Whosoever” oh how broad the invitation sounds,
“Whosoever” reaches to the earth’s remotest bounds,
Jesus by His precious blood makes altogether free
And His “Whosoever cometh,” that means me. [Refrain]

3 There is none so righteous but he needs the blessed Lord,
There is none so vile but Christ invites him in His word,
There is none who may not come to Jesus with the plea:
Thou hast said it—“Whosoever” that means me. [Refrain]
