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 have the Savior’s presence as you go?
Would you have the blessed foretaste here below?
Would you have the Father’s blessing day by day?
Would you have His spirit with you all the way?

Hera the Savior’s invitation “Come to me,”
And His offer of salvation full and free;
All ye weary, heavy ladened, and distressed,
Come, and in His love forever be at rest.

2 Would you seek the Fount that cleanseth white as snow?
Would you follow your Redeemer here below?
Would you have in you abiding, blessed peace?
Would you have from sin’s dominion full release? [Refrain]

3 Would you love the Lord who bought you with His blood?
Would you gladly follow Jesus thro’ the flood?
Would you know your sins forgiven every one?
Would you have the Savior’s plaudit “Welcome home?” [Refrain]
