Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

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]
