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,

1 The beggar sat blind by the wayside road,
Till Jesus came along, came along that way;
And then he rejoiced in the pow'r of God,
When Jesus came along that way.

Chorus:
My life was all darkened by guilt and sin,
Till Jesus came along, came along my way;
But now 'tis all brightness and peace within,
Since Jesus came along my way.

2 One word from the Master, his eyes gave sight,
When Jesus came along, came along that way;
And faith is his word fill'd his heart with light,
When Jesus cane along that way. [Chorus]

3 I heard the sweet sound of the angel throng,
When Jesus came along, came along my way;
As gladly they sang the redemption song,
When Jesus came along that way. [Chorus]

4 Oh, come to the Saviour; be healed of sin,
Today he comes along, comes along your way;
The sinner cries out, and the light breaks in,
When Jesus comes along that way. [Chorus]
