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 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.
