Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 ‘Tis the gospel message,
Hark! we hear it say,
Leave the world for Jesus,
Haste without delay;
Leave the world for Jesus,
Happy we shall be;
We are coming, gladly coming,
Lord to thee.

Refrain:
Coming home today,
Coming home today,
We are coming, gladly coming,
Coming, Lord, to thee;
Coming home today,
Coming home today,
We are coming, gladly coming,
Singing all the way.

2 Whosoever thirsteth,
Let them now draw near
To the waters flowing
Ever bright and clear,
To the living waters
Welcome all shall be:
We are coming, gladly coming,
Lord to thee. [Refrain]

3 Leave the world for Jesus,
Cling to him alone:
Oh, the tender mercy
Thro’ the Saviour shown;
From the yoke of bondage
He has made us free;
We are coming, gladly coming,
Lord to thee. [Refrain]
