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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 O tender beseechings of Jesus!
How sweetly they fall on the ear!
O gospel of grace and of kindness,
God's love and compassion bro’t near!

Is the Spirit of Jesus now striving?
His warning, my brother, obey;
Resist not His gracious beseeching,
O grieve not the Saviour away.

2 Beseeching in love for our Saviour,
Unworthy we pray in His stead;
Believe in the word of forgiveness,
Accept of the ransom He made. [Refrain]

3 Beseeching His blood-bought, His ransom’d,
Your blodies to Him gladly yield,
That, in you, and thro’ you, and by you,
His grace may be fully revealed. [Refrain]

4 Beseeching the saints to be holy,
Filled always with meekness and love,
Like Jesus so gently and lowly,
Reflecting the light from above. [Refrain]

5 Beseeching that all for His coming,
Unshaken may ever remain,
And stand with the saved and the chosen,
With Him in His glorious reign. [Refrain]
