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

228. The Messages of the Doves

1 The messengers tap on the windows,
The windows of the soul;
They carry this news from our Savior,
“I died that ye might be made whole.”

2 The messengers tap on the windows,
And beat their wings on the bars;
They carry this news to the sinner,
“You can be as bright as the stars.”

3 The messengers tap on the windows,
Three times they come and they go;
Jesus saith, “Though your sins be as scarlet,
Trust Me, I will make them like snow.”

4 The messengers tap on the windows;
“Behold, I freely forgive;
Whosoever will come, let him do so,
Partake of salvation and live.”

5 The messengers tap on the windows;
Sweet peace from our Savior they bring;
Sweet peace which is past understanding—
The window’s now open; come in.
