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.

Representative Text

1 There’s a blessed invitation
Ringing out so full and free,
There’s a loving Savior calling—
“Sinners will you come to me?”

Refrain:
Will you come, will you come?
He is waiting for you,
See Him holding out His wounded hands,
Do not slight His love so true,
Will you come, will you come?
He is waiting for you,
Come today with this your only plea,
Jesus died, He died for me.

2 If you seek you’ll surely find Him,
Let your foolish pride be still;
Follow on with glad rejoicing
Though it leads to Calv’ry’s hill. [Refrain]

3 There’s a blessed invitation,
Precious blood that can atone,
There’s a Christ who still is pleading
For your soul, before God’s throne. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
