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 Would you be this day made whole,
Freedom gain from sin's control?
Jesus can redeem your soul,--
Jesus, Jesus only.

Chorus:
In the darkness do not live,
Be not sad or lonely;
Jesus, light and joy can give,--
Jesus, Jesus only.

2 Jesus tenderly will lead,
Give you grace for all your need,
And your cause in Heaven's plead,--
Jesus, Jesus only. [Chorus]

3 Oh, what friend can love us so?
Who, like Him, our hearts can know,
Who hath borne our ev'ry woe?
Jesus, Jesus only. [Chorus]

4 He alone our souls can guide
Over death's dark, swelling tide,
Home at last, and by His side--
Jesus, Jesus only. [Chorus]
