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 What I am, Thine eye can see,
Yet I come, O Lord, to Thee:
Tho' my sins are crimson red,
Yet for me Thy blood was shed.

Chorus:
This my plea, my only plea:
Thro' Thy off’ring once for me,
I may cast myself on Thee,
Jesus, my Redeemer.

2 As I am, I seek Thy face,
Kneeling at the door of Grace;
O forgive this heart of mine,
Cleanse me now and seal me Thine. [Chorus]

3 As I am, O blessed Lord,
I believe and trust Thy word;
Let my soul no longer roam,
Take, O take the wand’rer home. [Chorus]

4 Lost, but found, my sins forgiv’n,
Child of God and heir of Heav’n;
Lost, but found, what joy is mine!
Thou dost cleanse and keep me Thine. [Chorus]
