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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 O sinner, the Saviour is calling for thee,
Long, long has he called thee in vain;
He called thee when joy lent its crown to thy days,
He called thee in sorrow and pain.

O turn, while the Saviour in mercy is waiting,
And steer for the harbor light;
For how do you know but your soul may be drifting
Over the dead-line tonight?

2 O sinner, thine ears have been deaf to his voice,
Thine eyes to his glory been dim;
The calls of thy Saviour have so wearied thee,
Oh, what if they should weary him? [Chorus]

3 O sinner, the Spirit is striving with thee;
What if he should strive never more,
But leave thee alone, in thy darkness to dwell,
In sight of the heavenly shore? [Chorus]

4 O sinner, God's patience may weary some day,
And leave thy sad soul in the blast;
By willful resistance you've drifted away,
Over the dead-line at last. [Chorus]
