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,

O Seek the Lord Today

Full Text

1 O seek the Lord today!
Today He hath salvation;
Turn from thy sinful way
In earnest supplication.
Repent and seek His grace,
His call to thee doth sound;
O turn to Him thy face
While yet He may be found.

2 Behold, the sun of grace
So brightly on thee shineth;
O take with Christ thy place
While He to thee inclineth.
Perchance His summons may
Ere long be sent to thee;
O turn to Him today,
Let Him thy solace be.

3 There is salvation still
For hearts contritely crying
To Him whose gracious will
Is now to save the dying.
His grace doth beckon thee
To seek thy Savior blest;
O hasten, swiftly flee
To Him who giveth rest.

4 As in its mother's arm
The child sweet comfort gaineth,
So, shielding thee from harm,
The Lord thy heart sustaineth,
O seek that sweet repose,
Come unto Him and stay;
Thy Savior now is close,
O come to Him today.

Amen.

NUN DANKET

NUN DANKET, named for the incipit of Rinkart's text, has been associated with this text ever since they were published together by Johann Crüger (PHH 42) in his Praxis Pietatis Melica (1647).
