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. Trifle not your time away,
Come to Jesus, come today,
For tomorrow you may be
In a vast eternity.

Refrain
While with you the Spirit pleads,
While for you He intercedes,
Now the voice of love obey,
Come to Jesus, come today.

2. If you slight His offered grace
And refuse to seek His face,
Tho’ He linger at your heart,
You may grieve Him to depart. [Refrain]

3. Has the world the balm to heal
What your life perchance may feel?
Trust it not; no more delay,
Come to Jesus, come today. [Refrain]
