We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 The Son of man is passing by
Let no one fail to greet him;
Forsake all petty, baser things,
Go forth today to meet him.

He’s passing today, he’s passing this way,
Let no one fail to see him!
The sinner who calls whom sin now appalls,
Will find God’s love can free him.

2 The light divine illumes his way,
The darkness flees before him;
Your path he’ll make with glory bright,
Go forth, accept, adore him. [Refrain]

3 God’s truth is ringing in your ears,
Why hold it in derision?
While Christ is near, his voice you hear,
Make now the great decision. [Refrain]

4 Your soul is not your own, but his,
With his own blood he bought you;
Why rob your God, who thro’ the years
With love divine has sought you? [Refrain]
