Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

697. Jesus Is Tenderly Calling

1 Jesus is tenderly calling thee home-
Calling today, calling today;
Why from the sunshine of love wilt thou roam
Farther and farther away?

Refrain:
Calling today,Calling today,
Jesus is calling,is tenderly calling today.

2 Jesus is calling the weary to rest-
Calling today, calling today;
Bring him thy burden and thou shalt be blest;
He will not turn thee away. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is waiting, O come to Him now-
Waiting today, waiting today;
Come with thy sins; at his feet lowly bow;
Come, and no longer delay. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is pleading; O list to his voice;
Hear him today, hear him today;
They who believe on his name shall rejoice;
Quickly arise and away. [Refrain]

Amen.
