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.

Representative Text

1 Sinner, now the Spirit warns you,
Seek salvation while you may,
Now the door of mercy’s open,
But there’s danger in delay.

Come to Jesus,
Come to Jesus
At His feet now humbly bow,
Oh, delay not, oh, delay not,
But come, come to Jesus now.

2 Heed the Gospel invitation,
Fly to Christ form sin and shame;
Pardon now is offered freely,
Freely offered in His name. [Refrain]

3 Long you’ve halted, doubting, wav’ring,
Half persuaded to obey,
Long you’ve tarried at life’s portals,
O come in, come in today. [Refrain]

4 Wait no longer, Jesus calls you,
Now decide for Him to live;
Come and prove His boundless mercy,
Prove how freely He’ll forgive. [Refrain]

5 Justified by faith in Jesus,
All your doubts and fears will cease,
And your soul become God’s temple,
Filled with light and love and peace. [Refrain]
