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

1 O hear my cry, be gracious now to me,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come;
My soul bowed down is longing now for Thee,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come.

Refrain:
I've wander'd far away o'er mountains cold,
I've wander'd far away from home;
O take me now, and bring me to Thy fold,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come

2 I have no place, no shelter from the night,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come;
One look from Thee would give me life and light,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come. [Refrain]

3 My path is lone, and weary are my feet,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come;
Mine eyes look up Thy loving smile to meet,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come, [Refrain]

4 Thou wilt not spurn contrition's broken sigh,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come;
Regard my prayer, and hear my humble cry,
Come, Great Deliv'rer, come. [Refrain]
