We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Poor, wildered, weeping heart,
What can relieve thee?
Come, sinful as thou art,
Christ will receive thee:
Come, though with woes opprest,
Soft is thy Saviour's breast,
There mayst thou sweetly rest,
There naught can grieve thee.

2 Come, trembling, timid soul,
Why this delaying?
Thunders that o'er thee roll,
Fall on thee straying:
Turn from destruction's ways,
Turn to the throne of grace,
There seek thy Father's face,
Weeping and praying.

3 Hence, guilty fear and doubt,
Leave me for ever:
Lord, wilt thou cast me out?
Never, oh, never!
From unbelief of mind,
From thoughts to sin inclined,
From flesh and hell combined,
Thou wilt deliver.
