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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 That grand word “whosoever” is ringing thro’ my soul,
Whosoever will may come;
In rivers of salvation the living waters roll,
Whosoever will may come.

Refrain:
O that “whosoever”!
Whosoever will may come;
The Saviour’s invitation is freely sounding still,
Whosoever will may come.

2 Whenever this sweet message in God’s own word I see,
Whosoever will may come;
I know ’tis meant for sinners, I know ’tis meant for me,
Whosoever will may come. [Refrain]

3 I heard the loving message, and now to others say,
Whosoever will may come;
Seek now the precious Saviour, and he’ll be yours today,
Whosoever will may come. [Refrain]

4 To God be all the glory! his only Son he gave,
Whosoever will may come;
And those who come believing, he’ll to the utmost save,
Whosoever will may come. [Refrain]
