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,
Harry Plantinga

1 Sinner, poor sinner, why wander away,
There’s a place at the cross for thee;
O heed now the Spirit, seek pardon today,
There’s a place at the cross for thee.

Refrain:
There’s a place at the cross for thee,
There’s a place at the cross for thee;
O do not delay, but come while you may,
There’s a place at the cross for thee.

2 Jesus has suffered and died for us all,
There’s a place at the cross for thee;
O hasten my brother and come at His call,
There’s a place at the cross for thee. [Refrain]

3 Bring all your burdens to lay at His feet,
There’s a place at the cross for thee;
There’s pardon for you and redemption complete,
There’s a place at the cross for thee. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ you have wandered away from His fold,
There’s a place at the cross for thee;
Come back from the mountains so barren and cold,
There’s a place at the cross for thee. [Refrain]
