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.

Refrain:
‘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]
