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. There’s a message full of hope
For the penitents who mourn,
With a heart of sorrow weeping o’er their sin;
For our blessèd Lord has said,
He that cometh unto Me,
I will never cast away, but take him in.

Christ can save and keep, we know;
He will wash as white as snow,
’Tis a message full of hope;
Tell it out where’er you go.

2. There’s a message full of hope,
Tho’ their many sins appear
Like a mountain reaching upward to the sky,
And the spirit low may sink
’Neath the burden, in despair,
And they fear that no deliverer is nigh. [Refrain]

3. There’s a message full of hope,
When at last we bid farewell
To our friends and all those earthly scenes for aye;
For the Master we have loved
Is the pilot who will guide
All the faithful to the land of endless day. [Refrain]
