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

461. Inside the Door

1 Inside the door, O safe retreat,
From stormy winds that fiercely beat,
From tempest waves that rise and swell,
Inside the door, here all is well.

Refrain:
Inside the door, oh, praise the Lord,
Exalt His name with one accord,
He is the door, He saves from sin,
And shelters all that enter in;
And so I now the theme repeat,
Inside the door, O safe retreat.

2 Inside the door, O blessed calm,
I feel a touch of heaven’s balm;
And here my soul doth sweetly rest,
As I repose on Jesus’ breast. [Refrain]

3 Inside the door, oh, let me stay,
Nor let me wander far away;
For in God’s house I would abide,
Therein my soul is satisfied. [Refrain]

4 Inside the door, O Lord, I pray,
Let me abide from day to day;
Close by Thy side within the fold,
That I Thy beauty may behold. [Refrain]
