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,

1 Oft have I heard a voice that said,
In tones that were soft and low,
“Thy Saviour has lov’d, and loves thee yet,
Then why wilt thou slight him so?”

But where is my soul, where is my soul,
Where is my soul tonight?
That voice pleads on, pleads patiently on,
But where is my soul tonight?

2 Oft have I heard a warning voice
That urg’d me to fly from sin;
To open the door I long have clos’d
And welcome the Saviour in.

But where is my soul, where is my soul,
Where is my soul tonight?
That voice pleads on, pleads patiently on,
But where is my soul tonight?

3 Oft have I heard a tender voice,
When troubled and care oppress’d,
And then like a weary child I sigh’d
In Jesus to find a rest.

But where is my soul, where is my soul,
Where is my soul tonight?
That voice pleads on, pleads patiently on,
But where is my soul tonight?

4 Oft have I heard a griev’d, sad voice,
Entreating me o’er and o’er;
And if I refuse to hear it now,
Perhaps it will come no more.

O Saviour I yield, Saviour I yield,
Take thou my soul tonight.
I now believe, and gladly receive
Thy message of grace tonight.
