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.

Representative Text

1 You long have been living away from your God,
And sinning against the light.
You’ve traveled a rough and a dangerous road,
Come back to the Saviour tonight.

Refrain:
Come back to the Saviour tonight,
Come back to the Saviour tonight,
You’ve traveled a rough and a dangerous road,
Come back to the Saviour tonight.

2 You’ve wandered afar on the highway of sin,
Away from the pathway of right;
But Jesus is calling and bids you return,
Come back to the Saviour tonight. [Refrain]

3 E’en now you are nearing the dangerous ledge,
That hides the dark pit from your sight;
Turn back ere you find it forever too late,
Seek Jesus, and safety tonight. [Refrain]
