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 Saviour to Thee I come,
Burdened with sin;
Open the door I pray,
O let me in!
How can I longer stay,
My God, from Thee;
Thou art the Life, the Way,
All in all to me.

2 Pleading Thy grace alone,
Humbly I bow;
No other help I know,
Save me just now.
Heal Thou my broken heart,
Saviour divine;
On me Thy love bestow,
Make me wholly Thine.

3 Trusting Thy mercy, Lord,
Night turns to day;
Resting upon Thy word,
Doubts flee away.
Ever my path shall be
Where Thou hast trod;
I come, O Christ, to Thee
Blessed Lamb of God.
