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.
Harry Plantinga

6029. The Shepherd Calls

1. The Shepherd stands at the open door—
He stands and waits for thee;
He’s calling now—has called before—
Oh, listen to His plea.

Refrain
He’s calling, calling, calling you,
Turn now, today, make Him your choice;
He’s calling, calling calling you,
Oh, listen to the Shepherd’s voice.

2. He’s waiting at the outer gate—
The gate of the open fold;
Why linger then or hesitate?
His love cannot be told. [Refrain]

3. Yield Him your hand, and heart and love,
Obey the Shepherd’s call;
Be numbered in that fold above,
Give Him your life, your all. [Refrain]
