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

Come and Be Saved

Representative Text

1 There's an invitation from above,
Come and be saved, Come and be saved;
Jesus bids you to the feast of love,
Come and be saved.
Tho' your sins be scarlet, sinner, come,
Jesus bids the wand'ring soul come home;
Why in sorrow will you longer roam?
Come and be saved.

2 Are you weary, are you sore opprest?
Come and be saved, Come and be saved;
Jesus offers you a perfect rest,
Come and be saved.
Out of darkness into glorious light,
Out of sadness into strange delight,
Out of bondage, out of gloom and night,
Come and be saved.

3 Jesus offers you salvation free,
Come and be saved, Come and be saved;
To the shelter of His mercy flee,
Come and be saved.
In His blessed word He bids you come,
In His mercy there is ever room
For the prodigal who seeks a home,
Come and be saved.
