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.

198. Let the Savior In

1 ‘Tis the Savior who would claim
Entrance to your heart:
Will you send your Lord away?—
Will you say?—“Depart!”
He will all your trials share,
He will cleanse you from all sin.

‘Tis your Savior, ‘tis your Savior standing there”
Haste, and let Him in! Let Him in!
Lest He turn away, let Him in!

2 No one like the Savior knocks
At the sinner’s door;
‘Tis no stranger that implores,—
He has knocked before;
He has often sought your heart:
Shall He cleanse it now from sin? [Refrain]

3 Oh, how can you bid Him wait
Till another day,
When already Jesus weeps
At the long delay?
‘Twas for you that Jesus died,
And ‘tis you He longs to win. [Refrain]
