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 Wherever we may go, by night or day,
A loving voice within doth gently say:
My son, from ev’ry way of sin depart;
Be Satan's slave nor more, "Give Me thy heart!"

Refrain:
“Give Me thy heart,
Give Me thy heart;
O weary, wand'ring child,
Give Me thy heart.”

2 Slight not that voice so kind, but gladly hear,
And choose the Lord today, while He is near;
He will His pard'ning love to thee impart;
Oh, hear Him calling still, "Give Me thy heart!" [Refrain]

3 We may have chosen long from Him to roam,
Yet He will welcome us, if we but come;
Oh, may we not delay, but quickly start—
While Jesus sayeth still, "Give Me thy heart!" [Refrain]
