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

Will you go to Jesus

Representative Text

1 Wanderer in sinful ways,
Will you go to Jesus?
He will save you by his grace,
Will you go to Jesus?

Refrain:
He is waiting to receive,
If you only will believe,
And to him your heart will give,
Will you go to Jesus?

2 Wanderer on barren ground,
Will you go to Jesus?
Only so can peace be found,
Will you go to Jesus? [Refrain]

3 Wanderer, before too late,
Will you go to Jesus?
Death may seal your awful fate,
Will you go to Jesus? [Refrain]

4 Wanderer, do not delay!
Will you go to Jesus?
Start for heaven—Start today!
Will you go to Jesus? [Refrain]
