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.

1. Oh, to have no Christ, no Savior!
No Rock, no Refuge nigh!
When the dark days ’round thee gather,
When the storms sweep o’er the sky!

Refrain
Oh, to have no hope in Jesus!
No Friend, no Light in Jesus!
Oh, to have no hope in Jesus!
How dark this world must be!

2. Oh, to have no Christ, no Savior!
How lonely life must be!
Like a sailor, lost and driven,
On a wide and shoreless sea. [Refrain]

3. Oh, to have no Christ, no Savior!
No hand to clasp thine own!
Thro’ the dark, dark vale of shadows,
Thou must press thy way alone. [Refrain]

4. Now, we pray thee, come to Jesus;
His pard’ning love receive;
For the Savior now is calling,
And He bids thee turn and live.

5. Come to Jesus, He will save you;
He is the Friend of sinners;
Then, when thou hast found the Savior,
How bright this world will be!
