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. 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]
