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

8223. Jesus Is Calling

1 Jesus, the Savior, is calling for thee,
Come, heavy laden one, come unto Me;
I will thy soul from its burdens set free—
Jesus is calling for thee!

Jesus is calling, tenderly calling,
Jesus is calling, calling for Thee;
Jesus is calling, tenderly calling,
Jesus is calling, calling for Thee.

2 Ye who are wandering now far away,
Heed the blest message—why longer delay?
Why from His presence so long wilt thou stay?
Jesus is calling for thee! [Refrain]

3 Jesus still seeks thee afar from the fold,
Out on the mountain so dark and so cold;
Turn to Him now—in His arms He’ll enfold—
Jesus is calling for Thee! [Refrain]
