Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

Representative Text

1 The Son of God has died for thee
On Calv’ry’s cruel tree,
Salvation may be thine today,
Then turn Him not way.

Oh, turn from sin and let Him in—
Redeemer, Lord and King;
His death for thee on Calv’ry’s tree,
Will full salvation bring.

2 He bids thee turn from all thy sin
And let Him enter in,
Confess thy failures one by one
And ev’ry evil shun. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis all He says, ‘tis all He pleads,
‘Twill meet a sinner’s needs,
Thy sin confess salvation take,
Iniquity forsake. [Refrain]

4 Be not afraid, but trust Him now,
And in repentance bow;
He took thy place and died for thee,
And made salvation free. [Refrain]
