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

Representative Text

1. Why unbelieving? Why wilt thou spurn
Love that so gently pleads thy return?
Come, ere thy fleeting day
Fades into night away;
Now mercy’s call obey—to Jesus come.

2. Why unbelieving? Wounding thy Lord,
Grieving His Spirit, doubting His Word?
Think, ’twas for thee He died;
Think of His bleeding side;
Now to the crucified—to Jesus come.

3. Why unbelieving? Thou canst be blest;
Jesus will pardon, He’ll give thee rest.
Why wilt thou longer wait?
Haste to the open gate,
Come, ere it be too late—to Jesus come.

4. Why unbelieving? Trifle no more;
Death may be near thee, e’en at thy door.
Come with a broken heart,
Come, helpless as thou art,
Come, choose the better part—to Jesus come.
