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, 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

183. Jesus Is Calling Thee

1 Tenderly, graciously Jesus inviteth thee,
“Come unto me and find rest.”
Pleads He so lovingly, waits He so patiently,
Offers thee all that is best.

Jesus is calling thee—
List to His voice,
Jesus is calling thee—
Make Him your choice,
Jesus is calling thee—
Bids thee rejoice,
Jesus is calling thee now.

2 Paid He the price for thy soul on Mount Calvary,
Pierced His hands and His side;
Willingly, freely He suffered such agony,
Bid Him come in to abide. [Refrain]

3 Turn not away while the Spirit is calling thee,
Open to Him thy heart’s door;
Bid Him to enter and cleanse thy heart thoroughly,
Free thee from guilt evermore. [Refrain]

4 List to His voice, He has called thee repeatedly,
Break from the chains that enthrall;
Grieve not the Spirit lest He should depart from thee,
Never again on thee call. [Refrain]
