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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Representative Text

1 The blessed Lord, he comes to seek
Poor sinners by the way;
He brings for them the finest wheat,
He comes to seek to-day.

Refrain:
He comes to seek to-day poor sinners by the way,
The lost ones in the wilderness
He comes to seek to-day;
He comes to seek to-day poor sinners by the way,
The lost ones in the wilderness
He comes to seek to-day.

2 He comes with grace so rich and free
To sinners by the way;
He gently says “accept of me,”
He comes to seek to-day. [Refrain]

3 He comes to free from stain of sin
Poor sinners by the way;
He gives to them pure hearts within,
He comes to seek to-day. [Refrain]

4 He comes with loving heart and hand
To sinners by the way;
Oh, won’t you live by his command?
He comes to seek to-day.

5 He comes to make your title clear,
He’s coming now this way;
He’ll take you with himself up there,
He comes to seek to-day.
