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 Would you be forever blest?
Give your heart to Jesus;
Would you find the balm of rest?
Give your heart to Jesus.

Do not linger, do not wait;
Yonder stands the open gate;
Enter ere it be too late;
Give your heart to Jesus.

2 Would you dwell in heav’n above?
Give your heart to Jesus;
Would you meet with those you love?
Give your heart to Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Now His pard’ning grace receive,
Give your heart to Jesus;
On His precious name believe,
Give your heart to Jesus. [Refrain]
