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 When we turn to God and leave our path of sin,
When the heart, repenting, feels the need of Him;
Then our gentle loving Father, full of pardoning grace,
Comes to meet us with a kind embrace.

Refrain:
Coming out to meet us on the way,
Coming out to meet us, coming out to meet us,
Oh! the joyful welcome—see the Father now,
Coming out to meet us on the way.

2 He will guide our feet where quiet waters flow,
He will lead us onward thro’ the vale below;
With His presence and His blessing, cheer us day by day,
He will come to meet us on the way. [Refrain]

3 At the cold, dark stream of Jordan when we stand,
He will bear us safely to the promised land;
With His loving arm around us we shall hear Him say,
"I have come to meet you on the way." [Refrain]
