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.

11676. Jesus Is Calling You Now

1 Why do you wait a convenient day?
Jesus is calling you now;
Why do you turn from His pleading away?
Jesus is calling you now.
He stands at the door of your heart just now,
The dews of the morning are on His brow.
He is there waiting and calling you now;
O will you not come to Him now?

Refrain:
Will you not come to Him now?
Will you not trust in Him now?
Just now, right now,
O hear Him, He’s calling you now.

2 Days have gone by, and the months and the years,
Jesus is calling you now;
Joys have departed, and sorrow appears,
Jesus is calling you now.
The promise you made Him was never kept,
When down by the graveside you mourned and wept;
Turn to Him now, and His free grace accept;
O will you not come to Him now? [Refrain]

3 Darkness is deepening, and oh, ’tis so late!
Jesus is calling you now;
What if the Spirit left you to your fate?
Jesus is calling you now.
Escape for thy life, tarry not, O soul,
Escape for thy life, you may miss the goal.
And if you miss it, what horrors, O soul!
O will you not come to Him now? [Refrain]
