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 Sweetly today the Saviour calls to thee,
Salvation fully purchased now by me,
Now come, O come! poor sinner, come and live,
Poor sinner, come and live.

2 Throughout thy life I watched thy way with care,
Ev’ry dread sorrow ready then to share;
Now come, O come! poor sinner, come and live,
Poor sinner, come and live.

3 But in thy heart thou oft neglected me,
My hot tears falling, falling all for thee;
Now come, O come! poor sinner, come and live,
Poor sinner, come and live.

4 Thou must be faint o’er this unequal strife;
Nothing to help thee, naught to fill thy life;
Now come, O come! poor sinner, come and live!

5 Stay not, stay not! thy times are passing on,
Soon the blest offer may be justly drawn;
Now come, O come! poor sinner, come and live!

6 Today, today, O, take thy gracious Lord,
For the rich promise of His blessed word!
Now come, O come! poor sinner, come and live!

7 Sweetly today the Saviour calls to thee;
Salvation fully purchased now by Me,
Now come, O come! poor sinner, come and live!
