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 O how can you live without Jesus, my friend,
That Saviour so tender and true,
Whose love knows no measure, no change, and no end,
Who offers it freely to you?

How can you? how can you?
O how without Him can you live or die?
O come; believe; salvation receive;
And praise Him forever on high.

2 O how can you live without Jesus alone?
‘Tis He bears our burdens away;
No other escape; His own blood must atone;
His life must your penalty pay. [Refrain]

3 He’s all that you need; He entreats you to come;
He calls you in mercy today;
Tomorrow may seal your eternity’s doom;
There’s danger and death in delay. [Refrain]
