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 why will you longer your choice delay?
The Savior is waiting for you;
Then come to Him now, and repenting, say:
Lord, what wilt Thou have me to do?

Now, just now is the time,
Now, just now is the time;
Now is the day of salvation,
Come, come just now.

2 O come while He calls you, just as you are;
While mercy is offered to all;
Return, tho’ in sin you have wandered far;
O hear, and attend to His call. [Chorus]

3 O why will you doubt Him, refuse His love,
Why grieve Him by turning away?
He’s pleading with you from the throne above,
O come, then, while yet it is day. [Chorus]

4 He knocks at the door of your trembling heart,
O will you not let Him come in?
Unbar it, or He may ere long depart,
And leave you all hopeless in sin. [Chorus]
