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 Through a world base and craven,
In sorrow, not song;
Down a path rough and thorny,
We hurry along,
Through a life that is weary
With suff’ring and wrong,
Down to death comes the sinner,
But hope there is none.

Give your heart unto Jesus,
Give your heart unto Jesus,
When temptations assail you,
A friend He will be.

2 For a heart sad and weary,
To Jesus denied;
For a mind that is careless
What evils betide,
For a soul that is precious
But cannot decide,
The dear loving Jesus
Has bled and has died. [Refrain]

3 In the day of the Father,
The ransom’d shall sing;
In the dark hour of dying,
O what can you bring
To the Lord, there in heaven,
That you may go in,
To His house there abiding,
Always free from sin. [Refrain]
