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.
1 Ye sons of men, come one and all!
Come to the Gospel feast;
Obey your blessed Saviours call:
O come and be his guest!
2 We bear his message unto you,
Commission'd by the Lord--
His promises, come prove them true,
And trust unto his word.
3 All things for you are ready now,
And precious is the treat!
And all you need he will bestow,
To make your joys complete.
4 We pray that you may all draw near,
And to the call attend;
They who refuse our call to hear,
Cannot be Jesus' friend.
5 Nothing pertaining to this life,
Should cause you to delay--
Not Land or Oxen, or a wife,
Keep you from Christ away.
6 Be ye not like the stubborn Jews,
Who all his calls disdain'd!
Because they did his grace refuse!
His curse on them remain'd.
7 He calleth not the Jews alone,
But all who will receive;
Come poor and needy, ev'ry one
Come ye to him and live.
8 But some ye, mow make no delay!
O come with speed and haste:
Lest he should in displeasure say--
My feast ye shall not taste.
