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

152. Jesus Is Calling for Thee Tonight

1 Drifting away from the peaceful fold,
Drifting far out in the storm and cold;
Sinner, oh, turn from your dreadful plight,
Jesus is calling for thee tonight.

Refrain:
Jesus is calling, will you give heed?
He will supply your soul’s every need;
He’s your best friend, so loving, and true;
Come to Him now, He’s calling for you.

2 Long have you wandered far from the fold,
Drowning in sin and stifling your soul;
Turn, oh, turn now, while hope is in sight,
Jesus is calling for thee tonight. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is calling, will you say yes?
Long He has waited your soul to bless;
Give up your sins and turn to the right,
Jesus is calling for thee tonight. [Refrain]

4 Oh, look away to Calvary’s cross,
There Jesus died to ransom the lost;
Wonderful love, oh, look on that sight,
Jesus is calling for thee tonight. [Refrain]
