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 Tell me, Jesus, tell me, can I safely go,
Where the storms are sweeping and the dark waves flow?
Wilt Thou ever lead me thro’ this world of woe?
Tell me, Jesus, tell me, can I safely go?

Refrain:
Tell me, have I grace to go,
Thro’ this sinful world of woe?
Tell me, have I grace to go,
To go and live forever, where sweet waters flow.

2 Tell me, Jesus, tell me, of that world above,
Where no storm clouds gather, and ‘tis peace and love.
Have I grace to meet those, who sweet peace have made?
Tell me, Jesus, tell me, could sweet hopes e’er fade? [Refrain]

3 Tell me, Jesus, tell me, if I follow on,
Wilt Thou keep me faithful till the crown be won?
If I follow daily, nevermore to roam,
Tell me, Jesus, tell me, wilt Thou lead me home? [Refrain]
